 "Being from the New Orleans area, Charity (now University) Hospital has always been an icon of where you want to be taken when you are sick.  Our EM program was established in 1973 and has led the way in health care ever since.  Our residents and faculty were the individuals who took care of emergencies stemming from local tragedies like the Howard Johnson Sniper incident of the 1970s, the Bright Field riverboat crash and Mother's Day bus crash of the 1990s, and most recently, Hurricane Katrina - not to mention all the everyday emergencies that aren't publicized that roll through our ED. Our colleagues and residents represent unwavering courage. Certainly we have always been committed to New Orleans, LSU, and anyone who is in need of medical care. I believe no one has been more devoted to pushing its residency to be the absolute best.  We can hang our stethoscopes on these principles. We are dedicated to Excellence, Commitment, & Courage."

Dr. Mark Rice, Chief Resident Class of 2010
