Jennifer G. Duncan, MD, and Justin S. Sadhu, MD, have been named the 2019-21 Carol B. and Jerome T. Loeb Teaching Fellows at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis.

The fellowship program was established in 2004 with a gift from Carol B. and Jerome T. Loeb to advance clinical education. The program also is supported by The Foundation for Barnes-Jewish Hospital. The two-year fellowship provides recipients extra time to focus on implementing innovative ideas to enhance the education of medical students and residents.

Duncan, associate professor of pediatrics, will focus on developing a well-rounded curriculum for pediatric subspecialty trainees that offers career-specific lessons in clinical and academic skills, professional advancement and personal wellness.

Sadhu’s fellowship will aim to revamp the electrocardiogram (EKG) curriculum. EKGs are a low-cost, widely available diagnostic and screening test. However, Sadhu said national studies have shown that medical students struggle with EKG interpretation.
