"I am in the most rewarding field of medicine," said Lane R. Rosen M.D. "I get the privilege of working daily with cancer patients, hopefully providing comfort, palliation, or cure." Rosen graduated from LSU Shreveport with a Bachelors of Science in Biology. He says LSUS prepared him for the rigors of medical school. He fondly remembers the faculty members, such as Dr. Stephen Lynch and Dr. Cran Lucas, who enjoy teaching and who cared that students learned and not just attended.

Rosen is now the Director of Radiation Oncology at Willis Knighton Cancer Center. Other honors achieved in his life include being Chief Resident of Radiation Oncology at George Washington University Medical Center 1996-1997, receiving the P.R.I.D.E Award from the Shreveport- Bossier Tourist Bureau in 2005 and getting the American Cancer Society Cancer Awareness Award in 2003. He also received one of the 2009 LSUS Alumni Association Circle of Excellence Awards and serves on the Alumni Association Board of Directors.

His toughest professional challenge has been separating his personal and professional life. "Maintaining emotional boundaries is difficult when dealing with the tribulations of cancer patients," said Rosen.

Rosen suggests that students "start with a light load in college until the routine and good study habits are developed".
