Program Director's Welcome

It is with great excitement that I introduce to you the new Ochsner Family Medicine Residency at St. Tammany Health System! With ambulatory clinical education and true continuity that fosters a strong physician-patient relationship at its core, our mission is to train a diverse group of physicians to provide comprehensive, compassionate care to the community we serve. With Ochsner’s support, we have the resources of a full academic center at our disposal while training in a brand new, state of the art, purpose-built clinic and in an unopposed community hospital setting through St. Tammany Health System. Conveniently located in Covington, LA, our program offers a prime location for residency training with a low cost of living, competitive public education, a low crime rate, and myriad opportunities for dining, art, culture and the outdoor activities Louisiana is known for.

Family Medicine at St. Tammany

Along with a team of experienced Family Medicine physicians as core faculty and a full complement of specialist faculty, I invite you to explore all our program has to offer. If you possess a pioneering spirit, are passionate about Family Medicine and committed to providing longitudinal care to your patients and their families, the Ochsner Family Medicine Residency at St. Tammany Health is the place for you.

We expect to welcome our first class of residents in July 2024!
