Dear Visitors:

Welcome to the Louisiana State University School of Medicine in New Orleans. I hope you will take this opportunity to explore this site and discover the multi-faceted nature of our dynamic community. It is a place where you will find a conclave of distinguished scientists, outstanding healthcare professionals, their skilled staffs and our motivated students, all united in the vigorous pursuit of excellence in education, patient care, research and service to the community.

Click here to view complete welcome letter.

Today more than at any other time, our school has established itself as a clear leader in educating the physicians of tomorrow. Through systematic self-assessment, we have made comprehensive modifications to our curriculum as exemplified by our state-of-the-art Student Learning Center. Here students learn in small groups and from the beginning are taught the connections between the basic sciences and clinical practice. Through advanced simulation technologies, our learners practice difficult procedures before they perform them on patients. With distance learning and telemedicine technologies we network with our students and residents in outlying hospitals as they benefit from the multiplicity of experiences that come with serving a broad geographic area.

Since its inception some 75 years ago, our school of medicine has maintained a deep commitment to serving all patients, particularly the underserved. We are aligned with the LSUHSC Health Care Services Division which consists of nine hospitals throughout the state. Through this important relationship, our faculty and house staff provide quality medical care to the residents of Louisiana regardless of income or insurance coverage. Simultaneously, our partnerships with the LSU Healthcare Network and local private hospitals supply outstanding care to a growing population of private patients. These wide ranging medical services support the people of our state while providing the backdrop for a broad and comprehensive clinical education for our students and residents in training.

We live in a time of extraordinary advances in the biological sciences. Here at the LSU School of Medicine our researchers continually push at the edges of medical knowledge. We are continuing an active recruitment of both clinical and basic science faculty with a resultant increase in extramural grant funding. Through our many Centers of Excellence we collaborate across specialties by bringing the finest scientific minds to bear on creative and exciting new methods for improving the delivery of patient care and the quality of life for all people.

On behalf of our entire academic community, welcome and thank you for your interest in the LSU School of Medicine in New Orleans.
