Ochsner Medical Library offers a specialized selection of audiobooks with subjects aligned with healthcare and medicine. These include topics on the business, psychology, law, technology, and politics of healthcare. There are also biographies about prominent people in healthcare and stories of the history of modern medicine. In addition to these, there are audiobooks on professional development, leadership, organizational culture, and diversity & inclusion.
Our collection of audiobooks is available to all Ochsner-employed physicians, clinical staff, leaders, employees, and students using your Ochsner Single Sign On username and password login.

Audiobooks may be listened to online using a laptop or desktop computer or with your personal mobile device by using one of the OverDrive Libby apps:

Employees can borrow two (2) audiobooks each month and place up to five titles on hold. There is a two-week borrowing time for each audiobook with access automatically expiring at the end of the two-week period.
If more time is needed, you may check the audiobook out again as long as it is not already on hold with another Ochsner employee. In this case, just place a reserve, and you’ll get an email when it’s ready for you to borrow again. Also, your audiobook will remember where you last stopped listening or where you placed a bookmark.
Administration leaders and clinical supervisors who are interested in using specific audiobooks for group book clubs or staff learning assignments should contact the Medical Library in advance to confirm simultaneous user access availability.
