Academics and Research Careers


From its inception, Ochsner has been a leader in education, providing unparalleled hands-on clinical training in its clinics and hospitals for residents, medical students, nurses, and allied health professionals. Continuing Ochsner’s 70+-year education legacy today are the departments of Graduate Medical Education and Undergraduate Medical Education in which staff members provide exemplary customer service, coordinate complex logistics, and maintain a continuous focus on innovation and improvement. Training our future caregivers is one of the most valuable contributions we can make to the development of our next generation of medical leaders. In addition, the Education Team includes three departments focused on supporting and enhancing scholarly activity at Ochsner: Publishing Services, the Medical Library and Archives, and Medical Illustration.

The Clinical Trials Unit (CTU) at Ochsner was established for the conduct of clinical and translational research studies. The CTU was designed to meet the needs of ALL Investigators, both within Ochsner and from other academic and non-academic institutions. All Investigators are welcome to conduct their trials at the CTU. The CTU was developed to foster a spirit of cooperation and partnership with industry sponsors and CROs world-wide to provide cutting edge medicine to our patients.
