During our five year training program, we have the opportunity to train in multiple hospital settings across the city of New Orleans. This experience with academic, community, rural and private settings provides diverse exposure to health care practices and prepares our residents to be ready for any practice environment after graduation.
University Medical Center New Orleans
This is a state-of-the-art facility, which opened in 2015. It is home to many of our inpatient IM rotations including our wards services, a general medicine consult service, and a variety of subspecialty consult services (Cardiology, Pulmonology, Gastroenterology, Infectious Disease, and Nephrology). Our Medicien Clinic is also located on this campus. UMCNO's emergency department is where we undergo much of our EM training. It is the Level 1 Trauma Center in the greater New Orleans area, complete with 5 trauma rooms and 9 acute treatment rooms. The Emergency Department has 56 treatment rooms and 9 rapid treatment rooms. We enjoy a rich partnership with EMS in the area, especially with the New Orleans EMS Department.
The hospital has three separate inpatient towers with private rooms for all the patients. There are 19 operating rooms, as well as an electrophysiology lab, cardiac cath labs, and interventional radiology suite.
