Welcome to the School of Medicine!
Welcome to the Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center School of Medicine! We are honored that you have chosen to become a part of our faculty family. Starting out at a new institution can be simultaneously exciting and inherently disorienting, but we want you to know that we are here to help make that transition as smooth as possible.
We have many resources, programs, and opportunities to support your faculty position and to help you become accomplished, productive, and successful in your chosen areas of endeavor, including teaching, research, service, and clinical care. The Office of Faculty Development, in particular, provides you with many of these resources. We organize an annual new faculty orientation session; work with Departmental Chairs and the Office of Faculty and Institutional Affairs to complete the faculty evaluation process; administer a faculty mentoring program; develop programs and workshops; and coordinate and disseminate information about resources and opportunities to support the professional development of faculty members in the School of Medicine
As the school grows and evolves, we have not lost sight of what makes us great: our people. You are a crucial part of our future and play a key role in the success of the School of Medicine. Please let us know what we can do to enable your success.
Steve Nelson, M.D.
