Annual Dues

The department conducts a variety of valuable activities that are not supported by institutional funding. These activities are of significant benefit to our alumni, our residents, our students, and to the medical community at large, and we use Alumni Dues to help defray some of the associated costs. In addition, your dues help support resident education by sponsoring research awards and defraying the costs of travel to academic and scientific meetings, where residents present papers showcasing their work in the LSU program.
