Medical Education & Training

Education is a way of life at Our Lady of the Lake. For nearly 100 years, Our Lady of the Lake healthcare professionals have been dedicated to providing the most efficient lifesaving care for our communities, state and region.

Our team has worked tirelessly over the past several years to cultivate academics and scholarship, and we are proud of all that has been accomplished. Some recent accolades include:

  • Being selected by the Alliance of Independent Academic Medical Centers (AIAMC) as the winner of the AIAMC Innovation Award. The specific project captured GME’s implementation of text message reminders for faculty participating in patient safety rounds. More than 140 residents and 30 faculty participated in the project that was selected. Participating programs included Our Lady of the Lake Pediatrics, LSU-Our Lady of the Lake Psychiatry, LSU Internal Medicine, LSU Emergency Medicine and LSU General Surgery.
  • Being selected by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) as one of eight teaching hospitals across the country to participate as a Pathway Innovator in the Pursuing Excellence in Clinical Learning Environments Initiative. This four-year initiative allows allow Our Lady of the Lake to work with seven leading institutions to create new models of integration between healthcare delivery systems and graduate medical education.

As we look into the future, we see a bright path forward paved by the innovative ideas and solutions that our talented students and faculty bring to the table. These innovations have led to better teaching and learning, improved quality, and impact for every life that is touched by our institution. As we continue down this bright path, we look forward to a journey toward compassion and excellence. We aim to strengthen our dedication for academics and patient care, and in turn be servants to our community, especially to those most in need.
