Half of new Louisiana State University doctors will stay in state to train
New Orleans Times-Picayune, March 21, 2008
Exactly half of the 246 graduating students from Louisiana State University's medical schools will be staying in Louisiana, according to figures. This is an encouraging sign for healthcare in storm-battered south Louisiana, because studies have shown most doctors practice where they complete their residencies. Fledgling doctors will also be converging on New Orleans from across the country to begin their postgraduate study as well as help the region recover from Hurricane Katrina's damage to the medical system.
