Like the city of New Orleans, our program draws residents from many different places, cultures, and backgrounds. The Med/Peds Chiefs Residents are fourth-year residents selected by the Departments of Internal Medicine and Pediatrics who work closely with the chief residents of each department as the resident-administration liaisons. Please feel free to contact our Chief Residents before, during, or after the application process with any questions.

Why Our Residents Chose LSU New Orleans:
"I chose LSU because when I interviewed I felt that the residents had a tight-knit community and were happy learning here. Everyone I met was so welcoming and friendly and truly interested in me as a person. I also wanted to attend a residency program that would allow me to see a diversity of patients and illness severeity. I felt that LSU I would not only be challenged but also supported tremendoulsy in all aspects of residency."

" I love the LSU family! The faculty, residents, staff are always willing to teach and help! I love spending time with my family here in New Orleans and attending Saints and LSU football games. I also enjoy eating Procambarus clarkii (crawfish)!"

"I had a fantastic experience during my interview. Everyone was incredibly welcoming, passionate about patient care, and excited to be in the program, which said a lot. The "good vibes" aside, this program accesses a diverse patient population with training at several hospitals, creating exposure to different groups of individuals and healthcare systems. I am confident I will be well-prepared for whatever may come next."
