Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have residency programs at your hospital and if so, how do they stack up?

A very important part of our Health Sciences Center, the LSU Hospital in Shreveport is a major residency training institution with 18 residency training programs and 15 fellowships accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education. Currently there are 344 interns and residents and 65 fellows training in LSUHSC Shreveport residency programs.

Our residency training programs ranked among the top three in the United States, according to a national benchmarking study conducted in 2006 by the University Healthsystem Consortium (UHC).

Analyses of residency programs were quite detailed, but essentially there were eight key measures used to judge residency program performance.

Residencies at the Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School, and Duke University Health System also ranked among the top three.
