Dr. Morgan Schoer joined the Department of Medicine in the Division of Nephrology as an Assistant Professor as of August 2023. She is a highly respected physician-educator who has distinguished herself in clinical nephrology and education. Dr. Schoer has received all her undergraduate and graduate training here at WUSM in St. Louis. She received her B.A. in Biology and Chemistry in 2013, and subsequently she received her MD from WUSM in 2018. Upon graduation, she received the Alfred Goldman Prize for achievements in Internal Medicine. She completed her internal medicine training at Barnes-Jewish Hospital, and her clinical excellence was recognized with two separate awards: Junior Resident of the Year in 2020 and the Distinguished Clinical Excellence Award in 2021. We were extremely fortunate when Dr. Schoer chose to continue her specialty training in nephrology here at WUSM. She is universally recognized for her thoughtful and meticulous care. Dr. Schoer is an empathic caregiver and outstanding communicator.
She precepts medical students and internal medicine residents on their inpatient nephrology rotations. She provides a variety of lectures for the internal medicine residents, medical students, and renal fellows, covering a range of topics including sodium disorders, immune checkpoint inhibitor-associated acute kidney injury, and health disparities. Reflecting the esteem in which she is held among her peers, Dr. Schoer was voted one of our two Chief Fellows for 2022 – 2023. Dr. Schoer has contributed to a variety of published scholarly projects. She is coauthor on an important multidisciplinary manuscript entitled, “Modeling of Clinical Trajectories and Outcomes in the Intensive Care Unit: A Proof-of-Concept Evaluation of Acute Kidney Injury Among Critically Ill Patients with COVID-19.” She also wrote a first author chapter on mineral and bone disease for the revised Handbook of Dialysis. She was invited to be an intern member of the Policy and Advocacy Committee for the American Society of Nephrology reflecting her interest in advocacy. We believe that her accelerating track record of productivity indicates that she will thrive as a scholar here at WUSM.
