The Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery Residency Program promotes active involvement in a wide range of conferences and events. In addition to daily preoperative sessions and weekly case conferences, the department sponsors regional symposia, and other conferences of varying scope, often in conjunction with other LSU Health Shreveport departments. Listed below are the standard weekly and monthly events available to Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery residents at LSU Health Shreveport. All conferences with the exception of Journal Club take place in the Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery Conference Room on campus.
The surgical skills laboratory serves as a teaching tool for medical students, residents, faculty, and practicing surgeons of all subspecialty fields. The lab provides a setting in which learners of all levels may practice and hone their surgical skills. Using cadaveric specimens allow participants a relaxed setting to strengthen their anatomic knowledge without putting actual patients at risk.
