Interview Experiences
Extremely friendly interviews and residents. I did not get to interview with the PD because he was late.
Very disorganized, 7 1-on-1 interviews, very few residents attended, very long day, PD/Chair did not give any presentations on the program
disorganized, all applicants congregate in conference room and coordinators will come get applicants to interview
Terrible!
Program Advantages
Huge surgical volume, lots of autonomy.
Ridiculously high volume 300+ cataracts! A lot of autonomy
strong clinical training with 250 cataracts and great variety of other procedures because of lack of fellows; good fellowship matching
Huge cataract numbers
Program Disadvantages
Crappy facilities, shreveport itself wasn't that nice.
Shreveport
small faculty with only 5-7 full time faculties; busy; Shreveport
Felt like I would be training 10 years behind the curve LSU has lost a ton of staff and money
