Welcome to our website. Thank you for your interest in our program.
The faculty, fellows, residents and staff are proud of our heritage in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation here at LSU. More than two hundred alumni physiatrists practice around the country in clinical, research, leadership and service roles.
We are privileged to serve a very large population at multiple facilities in our community including Univeristy Medical Center of New Orleans, Touro Rehabilitation Center, Ochsner Clinic Foundation, Children’s Hospital, East Jefferson General Hospital, and Chabert Medical Center. The diversity of pathology and numbers of patients who provide learning opportunities are incomparable. The strength and diversity of our faculty is underscored by the representation of subspecialty certification in spinal cord injury medicine, pain medicine, pediatrics, and electrodiagnostic medicine. Opportunities for service and learning in musculoskeletal management, interventional techniques, electrodiagnosis, neurological, orthopedic, pediatric and post trauma rehabilitation are extensive and, in many cases, beyond those of most other programs.
The excellent collaboration of faculty and residents and emphasis on resident participation in the educational process and selection of their fellow residents has produced a dynamic and ever improving program. We have consistently been accredited since 1973. In 2011 we received our most recent accreditation by the ACGME with a three year accreditation and under the New Accreditation System (NAS), the next self study is scheduled for 2017. We currently have twenty-four residents in the ACGME accredited residency program and 3 fellows in our ACGME accredited Pain Medicine fellowship. Add to this the charm, excitement and cultural opportunities of New Orleans and the experience is hard to top. Although the devastation of hurricane Katrina presented formidable challenges, we have rebuilt, are improving, and are better than ever.
Peruse the site, contact our residents, visit the program; or do a rotation with us. You will be impressed. Our strong program is getting stronger and we invite you to become a part of it.
