The Journal of Graduate Medical Education (JGME) has recognized Patricia Kao, MD, MS, MHPE, Associate Professor in the Division of Nephrology, as one of the journal’s 2022 Outstanding Reviewers.

Every year, JGME honors select reviewers to acknowledge their contribution of time, energy, and expertise in providing critiques and feedback to editors and authors of their articles.  Dr. Kao was recognized as a 2022 Outstanding Reviewer, one who reviewed four or more papers in the past year and had an average reviewer rating of ≥ 80, and/or reviewed at least 1 paper in the past year with a reviewer rating of 95 to 100.  See JGME’s official “thank you” to their 2022 reviewers here.

“It is a privilege to review manuscripts for such a high impact medical education journal as the Journal of Graduate Medical Education,” says Kao.  “I am especially grateful to JGME for recognizing the behind-the-scenes efforts of their reviewers, and I am honored to be selected as one of their 2022 Outstanding Reviewers.”

Since joining WashU Nephrology in 2016, Kao has built an extensive list of accomplishments in medical education, most notably being the creator and Director of the Washington University Teaching Physician Pathway (WUTPP).  With the support of the prestigious Carol B. and Jerome T. Loeb Teaching Fellowship (2017-2019), she designed and pioneered the WUTPP program and curriculum, which provides residents and fellows who are interested in medical education with the opportunity for in-depth professional development as clinical educators.
