Ochsner Health is a system that delivers health to the people of Louisiana, Mississippi and the Gulf South with a mission to Serve, Heal, Lead, Educate and Innovate.
This weekly conference takes place on Thursday at noon. This forum is the core of our cerebrovascular didactics and is attended by the entire department. Topics and presenters are rotated throughout the year and include attendings, fellows and residents.
Once a month lecture series hosted by Dr. Tarsia with residents and fellows. This provides extra dedicated time to become more familiar with the interpretation of CTA and MRA via stroke code simulation scenarios. There are formal cerebrovascular anatomy lectures built into the sessions, but the most valuable component is the open-ended discussion and Q&A from trainees. Residents and fellows are encouraged to bring cases to review.
This monthly inter-departmental conference is hosted by Dr. James Michael Milburn, MD, Director of Ochsner Neuro-Interventional Services and Program Director of the Ochsner Radiology Residency. There is representation and case presentation from multiple academic centers across the state via Zoom, including neurologists, Neuro-IR and Neurosurgery. An exceptional forum for these physicians to not only demonstrate cases, but to collaborate on diagnostic dilemmas or management decisions.
This large, interdepartmental conference occurs every week on Wednesday mornings. It is not specific to vascular neurology but will include the toughest or most interesting vascular cases selected by the neuroradiology group throughout the previous week.
Contains orientation and onboarding information, access to a recommended reading list, and an organized and curated database of key clinical trials and studies within the neurovascular curriculum. It provides a good launching point for the new fellow as a helpful way to organize and formulate acquisition of knowledge within the field. This also serves as a legacy project that current fellows can contribute to during their time with us and have lifetime access.
