Dr. Bill Salzer devoted his life to the practice of medicine (with a specialty in infectious diseases) and to the training of medical students. A highly respected member of the MU School of Medicine faculty for 27 years, Dr. Salzer earned numerous honors and teaching awards. He was so beloved by the Med School Class of 2016 that they asked him to be their commencement speaker. Dr. Salzer joined the Med School in 1992 from Wake Forest School of Medicine, which used a patient-based learning curriculum. He was instrumental in helping Mizzou’s faculty and curriculum design committee switch from a lecture-based system to PBL in 1993. To honor Dr. Salzer, who died of cancer in September, a campaign has been launched to raise $10,000 for a PBL classroom in his name. Funds raised will be directed to the PBL-25 Scholarship Fund.
