Resident applicants are expected to have graduated from an accredited Medical School in the United States. Candidates from Foreign and U.S. Territory School of Medicine will be reviewed on an individual basis. Any accepted candidate must be able to obtain a Louisiana Medical License.

The residency program director and faculty members review all completed applications. A group decision is made about who to invite for an interview with our program. Applicants are notified and scheduled for one of interview dates.

During the interview process each applicant is interviewed by faculty members on a one-on-one basis. These one-on-one assist faculty members with forming a subject and objective perspective of the applicant.

At the end of the interview process the faculty members meets and scores the resident applicants in writing on an evaluation form. The ranked applicants are then placed on a numerical ranking list that is forwarded to ERAS.
