Alumni Endowed Professor of Psychiatry

The Alumni Endowed Professorship program was established by the Washington University Medical Center Alumni Association during the 1977-1978 academic year. The goal of the program is to create one professorship in each department at the Medical School. Funding comes from contributions by medical school alumni and former house staff. The Alumni Endowed Professorship in Psychiatry is the tenth endowed professorship established through the program. Dr. Laura Bierut was installed as the first Alumni Endowed Professor in Psychiatry in January 2014.
