As part of a large academic medical center, clinical research is fostered within the department. The residency program incorporates a continuum for scholarly activity in its curriculum. Over the 4-year course of training, residents will define their own research question, then devise and implement a study to answer that question. Our residents receive a stipend to present their findings at local, regional and national meetings. A Research and Innovation fellowship is available for interested residents.
If you have questions about how to get involved in clinical research at Ochsner, please contact the Department of Clinical Research Support at 504-842-4685.
