Dr. Jeffrey Marinshaw joined the Department of Medicine in the Division of Hospital Medicine as an instructor in June 2021. He grew up in Chapel Hill, NC before attending Washington University in St. Louis where he was a Dieckmann Scholar. He graduated summa cum laude with bachelor’s degrees in Biology and Classics in 2012 and was inducted into Phi Beta Kappa. Starting his junior year of college and continuing for a full year after graduation, he worked in the lab of Dr. Matthew Ciorba, M.D. within the Division of Gastroenterology at the Washington University School of Medicine. His primary project focused on creating a panel of gastrointestinal epithelial cell lines from patient biopsies collected during routine upper and lower endoscopies for use in future studies of gastrointestinal epithelial cell function. Dr. Marinshaw was a Distinguished Alumni Scholarship Program recipient at the Washington University School of Medicine, graduating in 2018. He helped create and edit electronic flash cards for the second-year preclinical courses in collaboration with several other second-year students, and this sparked his interest in medical education. He completed his internal medicine residency at Barnes-Jewish Hospital/Washington University in 2021.
During his training, Dr. Marinshaw participated in the Washington University Teaching Physicians Pathway, a two-year program focused on medical education alongside selected residents and fellows from Obstetrics and Gynecology, Pediatrics, Surgery, and Cardiology. Among other projects, he created an online module focused on acute kidney injury and electrolyte disturbances for the third-year medical students as part of their remote learning during the COVID-19 pandemic. His medical education interests include learning theory, bedside teaching, and curriculum design for both medical students and residents. Dr. Marinshaw’s clinical interests include general inpatient medicine, infectious diseases, and palliative and end of life care. Outside of medicine, he enjoys spending time in Forest Park, board games, karaoke, and exploring the local restaurant scene.
