A Message from the Dean
As the newly minted Dean of the LSU School of Medicine,
I want to sincerely thank all of you who have contributed so
generously to the School of Medicine during the past year.
These are exciting times for our School as we build on our
past successes and move forward in our mission of educating
the next generation of physicians that will care for the
citizens of our state.
Our goals here at the School of Medicine can be simply
stated. We want to be the best that we can possibly be in the
areas of research, student education, resident and fellow training,
continuing education for practicing physicians and patient care. We
want to be the Medical School of “choice” for our region. It is a goal
that we have worked for since 1931. It is a goal that we will continue
to strive for in 2008 and beyond.
In order to pave the way to tomorrow’s medicine we must be
innovative and creative and avail ourselves of the latest technologies.
The support of the alumni and friends of the School is vital to our
mission. This issue of The Honor Roll and LSU Medicinews amply
demonstrates your commitment to that mission and for it we are
extremely grateful.

Update on the History of the School of Medicine
The long delayed history of the School of Medicine (1931 – 2006)
is nearing completion. It is divided into three parts, a chronology of
events, biographical sketches of faculty important to the history of
the school and a section on important contributions made to
medicine, politics, literature, art, and military service (among others)
by our alumni.
We have gathered much information in all areas but if you have any
information to share about yourself or others write or email, please.
I can’t promise inclusion, but I can promise careful consideration.

To the Alumni Office
I was extremely happy to learn that I had
earned the Bobbie Millet Scholarship for
2007-2008 for my hard work over the past
semester, and I am quite grateful that I was
chosen. I would also like to thank you for all
that you have done for our class and the many
classes that have come before us during your
thirty-plus years of service.

Dear Fellow Alumni:
Since our last letter, we have a new governor and new legislature. Change is
in the air, especially in the months to come. Governor Jindal states that he is
committed to building the LSU VA Teaching Hospital in New Orleans.
The Isidore Cohn Jr., MD, Student Learning Center was destroyed by the
hurricane. Through your generosity, the equipment was replaced and our
students have enjoyed the benefits of simulation. The Student Learning
Center will be rebuilt soon on the sixth floor of 2020 Gravier Street.
We are going through a transformational change in medical education from
strictly knowledge-based to competency-based education and evaluation.
The Cohn Learning Center made it possible to go from reliance on
multiple-choice tests to competence-based education and evaluation with the
patient simulator.
This year’s project is the Center for Advanced Practice, i.e., CAP. The Center for Advanced
Practice is located on the 5th floor, one floor below the Cohn Learning Center and
comprises 20,000 square feet. It presently is 98% complete. It will also house the new
Dean’s Office and our own Alumni Office. The target audience will be residents and
physicians in practice and the focus is the use of all educational modalities incorporating
evolving technology into medical practice in all specialties.
Doctors who must employ these advances in real patients can’t afford to be less than
completely familiar with the technology. But how will we learn this and who will assure that
the physicians have the chance to learn these new techniques in an unbiased and (almost
certainly to become) accredited setting?
This is the real advantage of the Center for Advanced Practice. We are poised like no other
site in the United States, and perhaps the world, to teach use of emerging technologies into
actual practice. A major device manufacturer, who has just completed a learning center in
the corporate headquarters, stated that our new center of advanced learning makes their new
center practically obsolete.
Once again, it was Medical Alumni who answered the call, secured the financing to start and
to finish the project. It was your Alumni Board and supporters who sponsored the Second
Gala, an evening that was enjoyed by all and raised greater than $180,000 for CAP.
June 13 & 14, 2008 – Alumni Weekend – our Chancellor, Larry Hollier (’68) has
authorized the dedication of the Center for Advanced Practice. The center will be directed
by Charles Hilton (’76) with the intent and purposes for which it was built.
As history has recorded in the 1940s and 1950s, New Orleans was one of the most
prominent graduate medical education training sites in the United States. We had
something no one else had – Charity Hospital. Due to the generosity and foresight of the
LSU Medical Alumni Association, we now stand at the threshold of reclaiming that position
with the continuing evolution of our competency based, technology driven center for
medical education. The Center for Advanced Practice is a crucial part of this evolution as we
can and will embrace the entire continuum of learners and techniques.
Your support and financial generosity has made all of the above possible.
Thank you.

Purple Blues and Gold
2007 Gala Grand Success
t was listening to the warm up provided by Alex Pena’s musical group. It was dancing
to the music of Irma Thomas and her band. It was silent auction. It was live auction.
It was food and drink and fellowship of 800 faculty, alumni and friends of LSU School
of Medicine. It was the result of hundreds of hours of staff and volunteer efforts.
It was “Purple Blues and Gold” the Alumni Association’s Second Annual Fall Gala. All
event proceeds, $180,000 were earmarked for the Center for Advanced Practice, but more
than that it was another opportunity for the large and extended family of the School of
Medicine to have a good time.
Perhaps a letter from the “Faculty Assembly” said it best: “In our discussion of the event

festive mood.
wonderful evening and opportunity to contribute to an important cause. Occasions such
as this are also of tremendous value in the post Katrina era where faculty and staff are
incredibly busy and dispersed to numerous locations. This event brought our faculty and many students together for fun, food,
and terrific music.”
Your Alumni Association is already planning to stage its Third Annual Gala on October 18, 2008.

They Voted With Their Backsides
By the time you read this, activities in the new Center for Advanced
Practice will be occurring regularly. And if the emails from Facility
Planning in Baton Rouge can be believed the resurrection of the
Isidore Cohn Jr., MD, Student Learning Center will have started.
Facility Planning has the final sign off on the plans and they tell me
they have signed off and given the contractor the go-ahead.
Great news! Two and one half years post-Katrina we are looking at
being made whole by the feds, who designed and built the levees that
failed during the hurricane and thus became responsible for the
remediation of the flooded Cohn Learning Center.
The Alumni Association, not bound by federal regulation and facing fewer
requirements from the state, was able to move forward on its long-cherished dream of
a Center for Advanced Practice, a training ground for residents, fellows, and practicing
physicians to compliment our student education.
Construction began in the spring of 2007, moved along well, and in my meetings with
architects and builders I was pleased with the project. The “punch list” was recently
drawn up to correct any perceived defects with a view toward “beneficial occupancy,”
the day when we could begin to actually use the facility.
Students, faculty and staff regularly wandered through as construction wound down,
always asking when it could be used. “Soon” was always my answer. That is until one
recent day when I was asked to look at a minor issue on the site. Walking into the
supposedly unoccupied Center, I heard voices and then saw that one of the labs was
occupied by “Katrina,” a pregnant mannequin fully exposed, if you catch my drift. The
voices were coming from the nearby large conference room.
Opening the door, I found every seat occupied by students and residents of the
Ob/Gyn Department. I stared open mouthed at the instructor. “We needed a place,”
he said. That was as clear a vote for “beneficial occupancy” as one could require.
“Good” I said, closing the door. That’s why we built it. Or to be more exact, that’s
why you built it. Thanks.
