Every resident is required to participate significantly in a research project or scholarly activity in order to successfully complete the residency program. The residency director will not certify eligibility to take the ABEM exam unless this requirement has been met. Our goal is that residents will gain an understanding of the research process by participating in an entire project from origination of a hypothesis through submission of the completed article to a peer review journal. We realize that not every resident may have the opportunity to perform each step involved in a particular project. However, the Resident Research Director must agree that the resident's participation has been adequate and significant and must certify this on the following form before the resident completes the program. It is the resident's responsibility to meet at least yearly with the Resident Research Director to review progress on fulfillment of the research requirement. Those residents not inclined to do clinical research might be eligible to spend time in the neuroscience laboratory and receive credit for this research requirement.
All rotations approved as research electives must have evaluation forms completed for the prescribed time by the supervising faculty advisor.

Ms. Kathy Muslow, provides notary services each Wednesday from 12:00 noon to 1:00 PM for university business only.
On July 1, 2008 all House Officers MUST have a valid Louisiana State Board of Medical Examiners (LSBME) permit (GETP, PGY 1, PGY2, PGY3, or any other valid LSBME permit), or license to practice Medicine in Louisiana and begin or continue residency/fellowship training.
In April, at the quarterly Coordinator’s meeting, Medical License information from residency partner was handed out showing the expiration dates of each House Officer’s permit or license, along with a document from the LSBME explaining the items needed to receive and renew each type of permit, along with USMLE Step 3 information. This information was distributed to avoid the submittal of late or no information to LSBME for initial permit/license or renewal of permits.
For the past few days we have printed LSBME License/Permit data from Residency Partner and cross referenced it against the information on the LSBME website. There are MANY New Hire House Officers with no permit/license information on the LSBME website and MANY Continuing House Officers with Permits that will expire June 30, 2008 or shortly thereafter. We know LSBME is in the process of updating many files on the website but there are also many House Officers that have not submitted renewal fees or documents to LSBME
