What were you looking for in a residency program when you selected LSU?
I wanted to go to a program with a busy trauma service and a more hands-on experience. After spending a month here on an away rotation as a medical student I knew that LSU filled both of those criteria. I also knew that I had found a program that fit my personality.

What advice would you give to incoming residents?
Figure out what's important to you in terms of your professional training. Find a program that offers these things that also fits your personality. You're going to be spending a lot of time with the people you're working with; you might as well like them.
