Greetings from Baton Rouge, and welcome to the LSU-OLOL Psychiatry residency program website! As another recruiting season rolls around, I have to take a deep breath and reflect on all of our accomplishments this past year.  Our program has set its sights to become a premier psychiatric residency training program and we are well on our way.  Through our outstanding facilities and training opportunities, our dynamic faculty, and the priority of teaching, we are preparing our residents to become leaders in the field of Psychiatry.

Some of our accomplishments over the last year include

Other important strengths of our program include

And I have to mention our excitement about the pending opening of our ECT and dTMS services later this academic year!

I firmly believe that the best residency experience is one where there is a good fit between the resident and the program. You need to feel like the training program you choose will be a place where you can grow and develop an identity as a physician and psychiatrist. If you are looking for a place where education comes before service needs, where the curriculum focuses not only on molecules but on the role of human relationships, and where an individual approach to helping you meet your potential is stressed, then LSU-OLOL in Baton Rouge might be the place for you!
