LSU Health NO Educator Announces Retirement 

LSU Health New Orleans announced that Juzar Ali, MD, an award-winning clinical professor of medicine, is retiring after 33 years of service to medical education in Louisiana.

In addition to his role as a pulmonary and critical care professor, Ali has received numerous teaching awards and has been consistently recognized as one of the Best Doctors in America.  He was awarded the Spirit of Charity award in 2022 for his academic, patient care, research, teaching, and administration services to the Charity Hospital System.

“Our educators are an integral part of the fabric of medical education across the state,” said LSU Health New Orleans Chancellor Steve Nelson, MD. “With 70% of the doctors practicing in Louisiana having trained at LSU Health, Dr. Ali’s immeasurable impact on physicians over the last 33 years will be felt for generations to come.” 

“The LSU Health New Orleans community is incredibly grateful to have worked alongside Dr. Ali for so many years,” said LSU Health New Orleans School of Medicine Interim Dean Richard DiCarlo, MD. “His deep commitment to advancing medicine for pulmonary diseases is valued and admired among the community, and his presence will be truly missed.”
