WashU Nephrology Fellowship Graduate Morgan Schoer Joins Faculty

Morgan Schoer, MD, joins our faculty and takes the role of Associate Program Director of the WashU Nephrology Fellowship Program

Morgan Schoer, MD, a recent graduate of the WashU Nephrology Fellowship Program, joined our faculty as Assistant Professor on August 21 , 2023.

Dr. Schoer earned her medical degree here at Washington University.  After completing her residency at Barnes Jewish Hospital/Washington University, she entered our Nephrology Fellowship Program in 2021. 

As a first-year renal fellow, Dr. Schoer was accepted into the ASN Policy and Advocacy Committee as an intern for 2022.  The committee helps shape public policy by advocating to the federal government for policies that benefit kidney patients and that increase funding for nephrology research and education.

As part of this committee, along with nephrology faculty member Andrew Malone, MD, Dr. Shoer was among 50+ advocates from the American Society of Nephrology and the American Association of Kidney Patients who met virtually with Capitol Hill lawmakers for the 2022 Kidney Health Advocacy Day.  The yearly event allows the medical community to impress upon the members of Congress the need for increased funding for kidney health research and innovation, and the need for increased access to transplantation by protecting living organ donors.  See more about the event here.

As she joins our faculty, Schoer is taking on the role of Associate Program Director of our Nephrology Fellowship Program.  This position goes hand-in-hand with Schoer’s interest in medical education, and she will be playing a role in revising both the fellowship and residency nephrology curriculums this year.

“I hope my perspective as a recent graduate can add useful insight for enhancing the fellowship and can be an asset for supporting fellows.”

In her down time, Schoer enjoys cooking, baking and trying new restaurants, as well as biking and visiting the Missouri Botanical Gardens.
