Mark H. Townsend, MD
I am a Professor of Psychiatry at LSUHSC Department of Psychiatry. I received my medical degree from the Tulane School of Medicine and my graduate and undergraduate degrees from the University of Chicago. I am currently director of LSUHSC's general psychiatry residency training program. My academic interests include undergraduate and graduate medical education and the psychopharmacology, phenomenology, and co-morbidities of anxiety, mood, and psychotic disorders. I have been investigator or sub-investigator in more than sixty clinical trials, and am currently enrolling subjects in mood disorders research.
My Little Something Extra:
I have sung tenor with the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra for several years, and encourage everyone to support local music and--especially--local musicians.
