Medical Research Currently, Ochsner Clinic Foundation operates six research laboratories within the Institute for Translational Research focusing on multiple medical diseases and problems including cancer, diabetes, transplant rejection, rheumatological diseases, neurological disorders and infectious diseases. In addition, Ochsner currently offers to its patients over 760 active clinical research studies in 50 clinical areas. Approximately 7,000 patients participate in clinical research annually and the number continues to increase. The Ochsner Institutional Review Board provides oversight for all clinical trials to ensure the safety of the human subjects participating in research. Ochsner established the Center for Outcomes and Health Services Research (COHSR ), formerly Center for Applied Health Services Research (in 2014, the mission of which is to advance knowledge, improve clinical practice, and improve the health and well-being of the community. The COHSR collaborates with Ochsner leaders to identify high priority issues and design key initiatives that would benefit from research expertise and program evaluation including new benefits, system redesign, patient safety and clinical care. The center also identifies and influences capacity to conduct health care demonstrations and pragmatic practice-based interventions that are high priority for operational leaders and have high scientific merit. COHSR services include an Information Analytics Unit that helps researchers extract data from Ochsner's System data repositories, an Epidemiology & Biostatistics Unit that helps researchers with project development and data analysis, and a Patient Research Advisory Board which facilitates patient engagement in both industry-sponsored and investigator-initiated studies. The COHSR is a major collaborator on several grants funded by the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute and the National Institutes of Health. The Clinical Trial Unit (CTU), located at Ochsner Baptist Medical Center, was established in 2012 to provide the ability to carry out a variety of clinical trials, including complex trials requiring close monitoring, high-volume trials, and more. Since inception, over 2,500 patients have participated in research studies at the CTU. The Biorepository Unit, located at Ochsner Medical Center, was established in 2011 to develop a robust inventory of human biospecimens and biofluids for utilization in research projects. Since inception, over 4,000 patients have donated their tissues and biofluids. This has resulted in development of a comprehensive ExpressBank with an inventory of over 41,300 aliquots of biospecimens. They also have custody of any FFPE blocks from the Pathology department that are 10 years or older dating back to 1998. Furthermore, they have access to remnant tissue and biofluid specimens deemed leftover medical waste from clinical procedures. To provide more biospecimen donation opportunities to our patients, a new Satellite BioBank Unit was established at Ochsner Baptist Medical Center in 2016 where an effort to collect women's health specimens and well as genitourinary specimens from men was initiated.
Division of Academics Since 1944, academics have been an integral component of the mission, visions and strategy of the Ochsner organization. The Division of Academics adds emphasis, intellectual capital and focus to Ochsner's mission to educate and innovate, with the primary focus of providing the highest quality care and service to the Ochsner communities and patients. A large portion of physicians completing the training programs decide to join Ochsner's group practice. The academic areas are operating divisions of OCF. Residency Training Programs. OCF operates one of the nation's largest independent academic medical centers and trains over 290 residents and fellows annually in 31 independent OCF-sponsored accredited residency training programs. In addition, Ochsner is a joint sponsor with the Louisiana State University Health Science Center ("LSUHSC"), psychiatry program, and is a joint sponsor of a pediatric program with Tulane University School of Medicine ("Tulane"). The joint programs include approximately 75 residents. In addition, another 684 residents and fellows rotate to OCF in various disciplines of medicine and surgery under affiliation agreements with LSUHSC and Tulane as well as other schools from across the country and around the world. Ochsner also supports LSUHSC residency training programs at Ochsner Medical Center - Kenner where approximately 129 residents in Family Practice and Internal Medicine, and approximately 90 residents in medicine and surgical specialties training programs complete clinical rotations annually. University of Queensland, Ochsner Clinical School. In the fall of 2008, Ochsner entered into a partnership with the University of Queensland School of Medicine in Brisbane, Australia to develop the University of Queensland, Ochsner Clinical School ("OCS"). A full student compliment, this program will graduate 120 medical students each year. The program is for United States citizens or permanent residents who are interested in pursuing a career in medicine with the opportunity to study in a global program. The students complete their first and second years of training at the University in Brisbane followed by the completion of years three and four (clinical training years) at Ochsner. The students graduate with a Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS degree) which is considered a Doctor of Medicine (MD) equivalent degree. In 2015, the University of Queensland School of Medicine approved the Doctor of Medicine degree to replace the MBBS degree. As a result, the University of Queensland School of Medicine and OCS were visited in 2014 by the Australian Medical Council as a component of the Medical School's accreditation. The outcome of this site visit was full accreditation for six years, the maximum term allowed. The graduating class of 2018 will be the first class to graduate with the MD degree. As of December 2019, there were 479 students enrolled in the University of Queensland, OCS program. In addition to the University of Queensland, OCS program, Ochsner continues to provide over 400 student months of clinical education to medical students from Tulane and the LSUHSC and other medical school programs from across the region, country and around the world.
