Welcome to the Department of Radiology at Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center (LSUHSC) in New Orleans, Louisiana. The mission of the LSUHSC Department of Radiology is to build and maintain an academic radiology program that encourages diversity and excellence in faculty, residents, and staff in order to provide state of the art radiologic care to patients, excellence in the education of students, residents, and fellows, and support for scholarly activity, including research. Our dedicated academic faculty members are committed to providing our Radiology Residents with the finest Radiology Education available. At LSU Department of Radiology we emphasize team-work in addition to individual excellence. Our department is our collaborative work of art.
The LSU Department of Radiology is an electronic film-less environment with RIS-PACS and voice recognition deployed throughout the enterprise. On August 1, 2015 the $1.1 billion, 2.3 million square foot, University Medical Center New Orleans (UMCNO) opened for patient care on a 34 acre site in New Orleans Medical Corridor across Tulane Avenue from the LSU Health Sciences Center. The hospital opened with approximately 250 beds and will scale up to approximately 446 beds over time. The new 200 bed Veterans Administration Hospital is opening across the street from UMCNO in early 2017.
The individuals who train in the LSUHSC Radiology Residency will have the opportunity to be a part of the growth of this exciting, state of the art Academic Medical Center. Our residents also rotate at Children's Hospital in uptown New Orleans for an immersive Pediatric health care experience and they rotate in the Veterans Administration Radiology Department. This combination of experiences provides excellent case material and a broad exposure to a variety of patient care environments. LSUHSC offers an ample supply of fascinating cases, teaching/learning opportunities, and scholarship, including but not limited to research.
Thank you for your interest in the exciting opportunities at LSU Radiology New Orleans.
