Ochsner is committed to a clinically-integrated research program with the ultimate goal of improving the health and wellness of our patients and communities. And as the largest academic medical center in Louisiana, we are training the next generation of healthcare professionals to be leaders who can meet evolving healthcare challenges.
PGY-2 Residents perform either retrospective research or begin study on a prospective study. They team up with a faculty mentor and complete research to present at the annual John C Weed Research Symposium.
PGY-3 are asked to perform a QI project to present in May at the John C Weed Research Symposium. Previous research has easily won acceptance for presentation at national meetings. Residents also give a 45 min presentation during the weekly M&M conference.
PGY-4 residents are encouraged to prepare their research manuscripts for submission to a peer reviewed journal.
On every 5th Wednesday, there will be a journal club that discusses both GYN and OB cases. The goal is to focus on articles that have defined the standard of care. We will also teach how to critically read and review the literature.
