Ritchie Teaching Fellowships

The Ritchie Teaching Fellowship award is an endowment from Robert and Helen Ritchie in honor of their longtime physician and friend, Dr. Joseph Flatley. Recipients are funded for 2 years, with the option to extend for another year, so that they may further develop careers as clinician educators.

This year’s recipients are Mohamedtaki Tejani, MD, Assistant Professor of Medicine, and Marilyn Augustine, MD, Assistant Professor of Medicine. Dr. Tejani will develop a clinical research curriculum for hematology-oncology fellows with eventual expansion to include internal medicine residents and fellows in other disciplines. Dr. Augustine will train endocrinology fellows to use motivational interviewing techniques and self-determination theory in their interactions with patients; Dr. Augustine’s program also has a goal of including residents. The fellowship committee was particularly impressed by both projects' potential to reach learners at multiple levels in our department.
