The Office of Graduate Medical Education serves as the central contact point for all residents and fellows (house officers) in training programs at LSU Health Shreveport. That point of contact begins at the time of their selection to a residency or fellowship training program and continues throughout their training period until completion of that educational program. The house officer's permanent record remains in the Graduate Medical Education Office.
Residency is the training physicians must complete to practice or specialize following medical school. A resident is a physician (who holds the degree of MD, DDS or DO) in a GME program under the direct or indirect supervision of an attending physician. A fellowship is the period of sub-specialty medical training in the United States and Canada that a physician or dentist may undertake after completing a specialty training program (residency). LSU Health Shreveport currently offers 43 fully accredited residency and fellowship programs. Under the supervision of our faculty, residents and fellows see patients at partner hospitals such as Ochsner LSU Health Shreveport, Overton Brooks VA Medical Center and Willis-Knighton. More than 5,000 residents and fellows have trained at our institution over the years. Upon completion of postgraduate training at LSU Health Shreveport, residents and fellows will have received the best possible training and be able to successfully provide exceptional patient care.
