Pathology Residency Program

What our pathology residents have to say about New Orleans...

"This is an undeniably fresh place to live and in addition to caring for patients at Louisiana's only safety-net hospital, you may get to spend your days off marching in parades with your attendings and wondering which jazz legend's house you happen to live in. Having been here for a few years now I can say with certainty that some things only happen in New Orleans." - Jack Harbert, 2023 Alumni
