Louisiana State University - New Orleans Residency

Historically, the Charity Hospital Emergency Department was one of the busiest in the country. The challenge of Hurricane Katrina brought unprecedented change. Our unique training and adaptability as emergency medical specialists have allowed us to work, teach, continue research projects and even expand through many challenges. In addition to world-class emergency medicine training we offer fellowships in hyperbarics, ultrasound, and international EM. We have robust, combined programs in EM-IM as well as one of the only four EM-Peds programs in the country.

Our primary site is University Medical Center of New Orleans, where over 70,000 patients are treated in the ED annually.
