Women Make Up the Entire Surgical Residency Class at Saint Louis University

The Saint Louis University School of Medicine was established in 1836. It was the first school west of the Mississippi River to grant a medical degree. Now in 2020, for the first time in the school’s history, the surgical residency class is made up entirely of women.

The five-member class of surgical residents will now be moving on to new assignments.

* Faidah Badru will undertake a pediatric surgery fellowship at the University of Florida.

* Jennifer Keller has been offered a fellowship in surgical oncology at John Wayne Cancer Institute in Santa Monica, California.

* Jennifer Lobb has been offered a trauma critical care fellowship at the University of Miami Ryder Trauma Center.

* Laura Peck will continue her education with a minimally invasive surgery fellowship at Wayne State University in Detroit.

* Annie Mooser will report to the U.S.S. Ronald Reagan Aircraft Carrier as a staff surgeon.
