There are numerous opportunities for those interested in research, and multiple resources available to assist our residents with yearly scholarly project requirements. Our residents also have opportunities to participate in both the Internal Medicine research conferences (ACP, LSU Research Day, Southern Regional Medical Society) and the Emergency Medicine research conferences (SAAEM, AAEM).


Our Directors of Resident Research for Internal Medicine and Emergency Medicine are listed to the left.  Dr. Engel is the LSU Internal Medicine Program Director and, despite his busy schedule between being program director and a supervising attending at University Medical Center New Orleans, he always finds time to assist his residents with research whether that is helping to publish a case report or printing out large posters for resident conference presentations.  Dr. Lim is our research-enthusiastic Emergency Medicine staff.  Multiple opportunities to participate in EM research come flying into our inboxes every few weeks, thanks to Dr. Lim's eager interest in forwarding resident research.  Aside from Drs. Engel and Lim, there is a smattering of staff in both Internal Medicine and Emergency Medicine who love research and love residents who enjoy research.  Because our program is mainly housed at University Medical Center New Orleans, our residents have ample opportunities to pursue research with Internal Medicine subspecialty staff including Critical Care, Cardiology, and Gastroenterology.  The LSU Emergency Medicine Program also boasts having staff with a wide variety of interests including Ultrasound, Disaster Medicine, and Toxicology.
