|Dr. Carole Boudreaux, associate professor of pathology at the USA College of Medicine, talks with a group of pathology residents. Boudreaux has been named the assistant dean of graduate medical education.|
“This is a vital position in our academic health system,” said Dr. John Marymont, vice president for medical affairs and dean of the USA College of Medicine. “Dr. Boudreaux will provide leadership for USA Health’s 22 residency and fellowship programs, including more than 240 physicians in training,” he said.
Boudreaux has extensive experience in graduate medical education, and served in the same position at USA Health from April 2011 to May 2013. During that time, she achieved the institution’s five-year cycle of accreditation and was commended for demonstrating substantial compliance with regulations.
Boudreaux received a medical degree from Louisiana State University School of Medicine in Shreveport. She completed a residency in anatomic and clinical pathology at USA Health and has also served as the pathology residency program director at USA Health. She is certified by the American Board of Pathology with an added certification in cytopathology.
Boudreaux replaces Dr. Samuel McQuiston, who held the position during the past six years.
“We are grateful to Dr. McQuiston for his leadership,” Marymont said. “During his tenure, our graduate medical education footprint expanded in several specialties, most recently with the establishment of a new residency training program in emergency medicine – a much needed resource for the residents of Alabama.”
