James R. Duncan, MD, PhD, a professor of radiology, and Erin Hickey, MD, an assistant professor of pediatrics, have been named the 2022-24 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 medical 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, also the chief of interventional radiology at the School of Medicine’s Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology, will focus on equipping medical trainees with strategies for preventing errors and responding to obstacles they might encounter while performing common, image-guided procedures.
With her fellowship, Hickey will aim to seal a gap in the curriculum by educating pediatric medical trainees about grief, including simulating difficult conversations they may have with patients and their families.
