APPLY | RADIOLOGY RESIDENCIES
Residency positions for both programs are filled through the National Residency Match Program (NRMP). All applications and supporting documents are completed and transmitted through Electronic Residency Application System (ERAS). Our program offers categorical residency positions and includes a preliminary internal medicine internship for the PGY 1 year prior to beginning Diagnostic Radiology or IR/DR in the PGY 2 year.
Applications will be reviewed beginning the opening day of ERAS for the 2023-2024 recruitment season. The application deadline is typically October 1 and interview invitations will be sent via email soon after.
Resident selection is a comprehensive process involving a committee composed of the Program Directors, faculty, and residents. Factors such as level of scholastic achievement, strength of letters of recommendation, and success during interviews are incorporated into the resident selection process.
Interviews for the 2023-2024 Match season will be virtual via Zoom. Interview dates will be announced soon. We interview for both DR and IR/DR on the same days.

- DR - 1232420C0
- IR/DR - 1232416C0
Another great thing about our program here at LSU Health Shreveport are the different resources provided, such as Stat-DX, Rad Primer, E-Anatomy. The program also covers fees that include the ABR fees and the core fees. We also receive an annual stipend that will allow us to purchase books, journals, subscription to the different medical societies, and they really encourage and provide help so you can travel around the country to the different meeting program. Our library also has access to all the major publication journals available in medicine and radiology. You will never feel the lack of available resources to learn from. - Dr. David Mata, Junior Chief Resident, LSUHS Radiology
What makes our program unique here at LSU Health Shreveport is that we're a level one trauma center. We have trauma patients from all of north Louisiana, south Arkansas, and East Texas, so we see a wide range of pathology. We're a small to medium sized program and we get to see a variety of cases. We do not have any fellows, so early on in training we may get exposure to more difficult cases that other programs with fellowships may not get exposure to. Once you get to the senior level, you're reading fellow level studies and can pretty much pick whatever studies you want to read. We also have several young fellow trained attendings that love to teach. I think of us as a family. We're all very close. We have that kind of relationship with our attendings too, we can go to them for anything, any kind of questions.
