Faculty Membership


The faculty of the Health Sciences Center is composed of approximately 1,100 professionals including physicians, dentists, nurses, research scientists, and other allied health professionals, nearly 800 of whom are involved in full-time teaching and research activities of its professional schools. They are augmented by more than 300 who are involved part-time in the Health Sciences Center’s academic programs.

Full-time members of the faculty have the same academic status as members of the faculty of other institutions of The LSU System.

The four faculty academic levels are, in the ascending order of their rank: Instructor, Assistant Professor, Associate Professor and Professor, or their equivalents.

  • Full-time academic personnel of the Health Sciences Center whose primary role is related to a clinical setting but who do not hold tenure at the rank indicated are designated by the word “Clinical” following their academic rank.
  • Full-time academic personnel of the Health Sciences Center whose primary role is related to a research setting but who do not hold tenure at the rank indicated are designated by the word “Research” following their academic rank.
  • Part-time academic personnel whose primary role is related to a clinical setting are designated by the word “Clinical” preceding their academic rank.
  • Part-time academic personnel whose primary role is related to a non-clinical setting are designated by the words “Part-time” following their academic rank.
  • Faculty primarily involved in activity outside of The LSU System are designated by the term “Adjunct.”
  • Adjunct faculty of exceptional distinction are designated by the term “Consulting.”
  • Retired faculty members may be designated by the term “Emeritus”.
  • The term “Visiting” indicates a courtesy title held by a visiting full-time faculty member.

The title “Special Lecturer” is authorized and limited to part-time appointments without rank or designation and is restricted to specialists and professional people whose primary occupation is the practice of their profession.

Boyd Professorships

Boyd Professorships, authorized by the LSU Board of Supervisors in 1952, are The LSU System’s highest designated professorial rank, awarded only to faculty scholar-researchers who have attained singular international recognition in their respective academic disciplines. The Professorships honor brothers who were presidents of The LSU System, David French Boyd (1865-1880) (1884-1886) and Thomas Duckett Boyd (1896-1927).
