Are other states having budget cuts? Is the recession over elsewhere?

Well, that's what you get. Yes, yes, I know the LA constitution is to blame for a lot of it, but cuts could've been made to higher education institutions. We have WAY too many public 4-yr colleges that are terrible.

Sadly, people in this state are stupid. You reap what you sow.

You link does not support your thread's title. I could not find a single mention of any med student leaving Louisiana for another state.

Therefore, what is your agenda with starting this thread?

No, but I expected your article to actually say some med students planned to leave Louisiana. It didn't do that. It said they are "concerned" but nothing about anyone leaving.

So why did you title your thread with a misleading title?

Read the comments in the article. Clearly students are leaving LSU based on their comments.

I can say that most of the people in my class want to practice outside of this state.

Louisiana Medicaid/Medicare reimbursements are horrible and Per capita Louisiana has one of the highest entitlement medical coverage rates in the country.

I did. I still don't see anyone saying med students are leaving the state over the cutbacks.

Its one of the major reasons why many of my class and this years graduating class are choosing to go out of state.

I'm not surprised it's happening. The linked article just does not support this thread's title.

The State's constitution is not to blame. Bobby is just using it to fluff up his national resume.

Former LSU health care administrator Dr. Roxane Townsend has landed a top job at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences in Little Rock, Ark.

“I worry what the future of health care will be in Louisiana. I cannot be effective here,” Townsend said. “I’m not sure what they are doing is going to be best for the state.”
Roxanne Townsend leaves for Arkansas

Dr. Steve Nelson, Dean of LSU School of Medicine in New Orleans is waiting for the offer from Kansas University Medical Center to become the head over there.

LSU's Medical School is currently looking for 6 senior level faculty to lead six different academic medical divisions right now because those division heads all left the state for other universities.

Other LSU execs who have left recently:
System President John Lombardi
Baton Rouge Chancellor Michael Martin to CSU
College of Science Dean Kevin Carman left for UNR
Business School Dean
Chief Financial Officer Eric Monday to U Kentucky
Vice Provost for Equity Katrice Albert left today for the University of Minnesota.
Vice Provost Jack Hamilton

The College of Sciences for LSU has lost 9 faculty members including its most prized one who just helped LSU land a $20 million dollar research grant.

William Jenkins also said another 10 research faculty left LSU for other universities and taking with them over $16 million in research grants.

All of this is okay though because LSU has only fallen 10 spots to 58th according to the National Science Foundation rankings.

Lombardi was fired, rightfully so. He's had issues everywhere he's been with his Board
Martin and Carman left for promotions
Eli Jones and Monday left for more money.
Katrina Albert is terrible
Hamilton retired.

But, yea It's just easy to blame Jindal.
