The LSU Rural Family Medicine Residency Program in Bogalusa was awarded a five-year $3.12 million grant from the Health Resources and Service Administration (HRSA). The grant is for primary-care residency expansion and will allow the program, which currently has spots for 12 residents, to accept up to 24 residents.

Welcome to the Department of Family Medicine

The LSU Department of Family Medicine is doing well. Our curriculum is stronger than ever, with the addition of dynamic physician teachers and hands-on workshops. Student interest in Family Medicine is on the rise. I am proud to say that 18 graduating LSU seniors chose Family Medicine for their residencies, and all but three of them chose to stay in Louisiana for their training. In addition all four of our residency programs in the state filled their available slots in the Match.

Speaking of our residency training programs, they continue to grow, as we add new faculty members and enhance training opportunities. We now have 80 residency positions among our programs in Bogalusa, Kenner, Lafayette, and Lake Charles, in addition to our Geriatric Medicine fellowship program in Lafayette.

This is a very exciting time for our department!
