Subject: The Loeb Teaching Fellows
On behalf of Loeb Selection Committee co-chairs, Dr. Eva Aagaard and Dr. Mary Klingensmith, we are pleased to announce that the Loeb Teaching Fellows application cycle is now open through Wednesday, March 20, 2019 at 5:00pm. Please share this information with anyone within the WUSM community who you believe may be interested in this opportunity.
The Loeb Teaching Fellows program was established in 2004 by a generous gift from Mr. and Mrs. Loeb to honor and thank BJH voluntary clinical faculty and WUSM clinical/and or investigator track faculty who are committed to excellence and innovation, and to encourage sharing that excellence with residents and students. The program provides fellows the time and opportunity to develop and implement innovative ideas that augment the education of medical students and residents. The voluntary clinical faculty of Barnes-Jewish Hospital and the clinical and/or investigator-track faculty at Washington University School of Medicine are eligible to apply. These prestigious fellowships are awarded to two individuals each year, who serve a two-year term. Loeb fellowships are the cornerstone of our innovation in education efforts and are critical to helping WUSM grow as a world-class center for education excellence.
There will be two (2) Loeb Teaching Fellowships available this term, supported jointly by the BJH Foundation and WUSM; the Fellowship term will run two years, beginning July 1, 2019 and ending June 30, 2021. A mid-term review and renewal is required in 2020. Loeb Teaching Fellows will receive
$50,000 per year for two years for salary compensation only to enable dedicating a significant portion of his/her time to development and implementation of their project and direct teaching of medical students and/or residents.
