Paul Wood

Paul Wood, MD

Hometown: Jefferson, LA

Medical School:  LSU - New Orleans

Why LSU Baton Rouge? The comradery. I didn't have to move far to come here, but it's so much easier to be away from home when you have a second set of friends and family in your co-residents, attendings, and nurses. Also, you can get "good enough" training at any EM program, but our exposure to high acuity will get you ready for the tough cases after residency.

What would you be doing if you weren't doing Emergency Medicine? Firefighter. My childlike understanding of the job duties is as follows: save cats, hose fires, wash trucks, and BBQ.

What do you do on your days off? Rock climbing, Autocross, sailing, fabricating large windchimes

Random fact about you? I was first on scene for a GSW this Fall, thank goodness for our great trauma training!

Pets? Olive (Goldendoodle), I thought intern year was a bad time to get a dog but I couldn't have been more wrong.
