Residency and Fellowship Programs

Medicine - Pediatrics

Please allow me to personally welcome you to our LSU New Orleans Med-Peds Residency Program!

New Orleans is a vibrant city with a very rich culture and original traditions. The music, food, and culture here are unrivaled, and we have hundreds of festivals every year!

We have the most welcoming group of residents and faculty. We are proud of the diversity in experience, perspective, and knowledge that our residents bring to the program and to their day-to-day work, and we work hard to welcome, respect, and support anyone passionate enough about Med-Peds to join our program. There truly is a family feeling here, just ask any of the current residents and many alumni who remain involved in the program!

As a previous graduate of this program, I have a strong commitment to ensuring that our residents receive outstanding training to be the best physicians that they can be, and to support them in their academic and professional goals.  The clinical experience is unparalleled—residents rotate in 4 local hospitals, providing the opportunity to practice in a variety of medical settings and patient populations, ranging from large academic safety-net hospitals to community hospitals and clinics.  We pride ourselves in our ability to provide the highest standard of care to all of our patients.

Sitting at the northern edge of the Caribbean and as a travel destination and port, learning medicine in New Orleans allows for exposure to the entire breadth of illnesses. The program leadership—both in Med-Peds and in our categorical programs—are approachable, communicative, and proactive, and they always seek to put residents' education and wellness first.   You’ll find people here that care about you as individuals and want to put you in the best possible position to succeed—to further your development as competent, compassionate physicians.

Please take the time to explore our website and get to know us.
