LSUHSC awarded designation resulting in improved patient safety and outcomes

LSU Health Sciences Center New Orleans has been awarded designation by the American College of Surgeons (ACS) as a Level 1 Comprehensive Education Institute. This is the highest level of the ACS Accredited Education Institutes. There are only 18 in the United States. The only one in its part of the country, LSUHSCs Level 1 Accredited Education Institute will serve the entire region.

The vision of the ACS Accredited Education Institutes is to create a network of ACS-approved regional Education Institutes that offer practicing surgeons, surgical residents, medical students, and members of the surgical team a spectrum of educational opportunities including those that address acquisition and maintenance of skills; and focus on new procedures and emerging technologies.

Level 1 institutes are Comprehensive Education Institutes, with more rigorous requirements for accreditation. Level 1 criteria include providing education to at least three different groups of professionals in addition to surgeons which could be other physicians, medical residents, medical students, allied health professionals, nurses and others. The effectiveness of the curricula must be demonstrated by long term follow-up, research, curriculum validation, expansion of practice and the introduction of new skills. Level 1 institutes offer collaboration with other institutes, remediation of practice, and interdisciplinary team training. Ongoing training/education incorporates procedural as well as cognitive skills. Space requirements include the capacity for skills simulators and the accommodation of teleconferencing and teleproctoring. Technology training equipment can include Virtual Reality simulators, Laparoscopy Cholecystectomy simulators, anesthesia simulators, GI endoscopy simulators, video trainers and more.

This national designation provides more evidence of the excellence of our educational enterprise, notes Larry Hollier, MD, Chancellor of LSU Health Sciences Center New Orle
