Neurosurgery training in New Orleans began when Dr Dean Echols became the head of Neurosurgery for the Ochnser Clinic and Charity Hospital in 1944. The oldest in Louisiana, the Tulane-Ochsner program has trained 63 board-certified neurosurgeons since its founding, including 5 chairmen. The program has a colorful history linked to New Orleans. Its residents have enjoyed training at Charity Hospital, Tulane Hospital and Clinics, Veterans Affairs Medical Center, and the Ochsner Clinic Foundation.
