LSU Ophthalmology 2022-2023 Chiefs
A MESSAGE FROM OUR CHIEF RESIDENTS
Welcome to the Louisiana State University Ophthalmology Residency Program! We are excited to share several aspects of this program that make it an excellent training environment and place to live.
Throughout your residency experience here at LSU, you will be exposed to a wide variety of pathology, clinical experiences, and patients. Most of your time will be based in New Orleans, however, other sites include Baton Rouge, Lafayette, Bogalusa, and Houma. Each location offers its own unique experience. The breadth of clinical sites and numerous full-time faculty allow for exposure to a wide range of approaches for treating patients as well as surgical techniques. These experiences are invaluable in preparing our residents for the next steps in their career. Our attendings are dedicated to making our surgical and clinical experience outstanding so that our graduating residents not only have the clinical knowledge to succeed, but also have longstanding mentorship as they go out into their careers. Residents have a balance of instruction and autonomy fostering adaptability to thrive in any situation. Graduating residents are skilled ophthalmologists, comfortable with the diagnosis and treatment of a spectrum of ophthalmologic diseases.
New Orleans is full of world class restaurants and live music. With festivals almost every weekend, there are always things to do with your time off. There is no better place to spend some of the best years of your life. We are excited that you are considering our program in your search for training! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
- Jon and Chris
