The Department of Surgery at LSU Health Shreveport has a strong commitment to research, according to a legacy originally established and promoted under the leadership of Dr. John C. McDonald in 1977. The clinical volume and diversity of surgical disease processes seen at LSU Health Shreveport provides abundant substrate for the development of important clinical and translational studies, with a promise to improve evidenced-based care and patient outcomes. The mission of LSU Health Shreveport is to teach, heal, and discover. These goals are reflected in the Department of Surgery's commitment to and inclusion of research as a critical component of surgical training. A foundation in research activities supports career development, and positions graduates of the surgical residency to compete for specialized fellowship training. Importantly, an understanding of the research process serves to develop critical thinking and understanding of the literature, and furthers education for future generations of surgeons.
