Loeb Teaching Fellowship

The Carol B. and Jerome T. Loeb Teaching Fellows program provides fellows the opportunity to implement 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.

Initiated in 2004 with a gift from Carol and Jerome Loeb and supported by The Foundation for Barnes-Jewish Hospital, the program was established to advance clinical education at Washington University School of Medicine by honoring faculty committed to clinical excellence and education, and encouraging teaching that excellence to residents and students.
