About This Program
Welcome from the LSU School of Medicine Department of Anesthesiology. We emphasize postgraduate education in anesthesiology and opportunities to develop clinical and research skills in all aspects of anesthesiology and pain medicine. In October 2008, we were approved by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) for an independent anesthesia residency program which began July 1, 2009 and graduated its first class in June 2012. In August 2015, a new state of the art billion dollar hospital complex opened and is serving the New Orleans community at University Medical Center New Orleans (UMCNO), which is a level one facility that is internationally known for trauma. Without doubt, the success of our department is directly related to our outstanding faculty and residents. We are most grateful to serve this region as a leader in anesthesia, critical care, and interventional pain management.
