"As the lay press has portrayed, the recovery in the New Orleans area has taken longer than expected. Based on the slow improvement of social and economic conditions, it is relevant to ask the question, “What has happened to medical education post-Katrina?” We have enlisted Dr. Marie “Tonette” Krousel-Wood to serve as Coordinating Editor to address this important question through a series of articles. Dr. Wood serves as Director, Center for Health Research at Ochsner Clinic Foundation, and has expertly identified topics, negotiated authorship, and guided the production of this symposium. Her choices for local leadership and assistance were equally expert with the selection of Dr. Charles Sanders, Chair, Department of Medicine, Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center, Dr. Kent Kirchner, Chief of Staff from the VA Medical Center, University of Mississippi Medical Center, Dr. Errol Crook, Chair, Department of Internal Medicine, University of South Alabama, and Dr. Mark Kahn, Senior Associate Dean for Admissions and Student Affairs, Tulane University."
