Mission Statement

At Ochsner, who we are is all about what we do and what we believe. Our Mission, Vision and Values guide our decisions, inspire our actions, and influence our relationships with our patients, colleagues and communities. At Ochsner, we strive to be a global medical and academic leader who will change and save lives. We will shape the future of healthcare through our integrated health system, fueled by the passion and strength of our diversified team of physicians and employees. This institutional vision of Ochsner helps shape the educational program of the Department of Radiology so we can best serve the community we take care of.

Program Aims

The aim of our Independent Interventional Radiology program is to educate residents in a high quality department so they will become competent graduates capable of seamlessly entering a radiology practice or fellowship. We strive to create a learning environment that gives residents increasing levels of responsibility leading towards independence while still providing appropriate supervision to ensure the highest quality of care for the patients we treat in the New Orleans area, the Gulf South, and throughout the country. Our patient population continues to diversify as the Ochsner Health System expands. We aim to maintain a professional working environment that is also very collegial and supports physician well-being, the type of environment that residents will want to join or emulate in their careers. We aim to train residents to become successful consultants to referring clinicians in order to facilitate efficient healthcare delivery through timely communication and effective problem solving so they will become valuable members of healthcare systems in the future.
