WashU Nephrology congratulates Steven Cheng, MD, who has accepted the position of Program Director for the Internal Medicine Residency Program at Washington University School of Medicine/Barnes-Jewish Hospital.
After receiving his medical degree and completing an internal medicine residency at Northwestern University in Chicago, Dr. Cheng entered the Nephrology Fellowship at WashU, and upon graduation in 2006 joined our nephrology faculty. Since that time, Cheng has excelled in his passion for medical education. He has been recognized as a respected educator and has won multiple distinguished teaching awards (see below). While Cheng will continue his clinical service and teaching in our division, his new position will allow him to broaden his impact in the field of medical education.
