It wasn't that long ago I was in your shoes, browsing residency websites as a medical student and trying to decide where to apply. I'd scour the website to see where residents came from and where they went, compared didactics and call schedules, and read program director messages spouting statistics about their programs and grand statements about their educational philosophies. In the end, though, I learned it all comes down to finding your fit.
If you are looking for numbers about the remarkable complexity and breadth of our patient care experiences, I'm happy to share them with you. If you're interested in the core principles and ideals guiding our program, I'd love to discuss them with you. If you want to learn more about our residents, I encourage you! But I encourage you to do so by visiting us in New Orleans, taking in the program, the hospital, the city, and the people, and finding your fit with us.
Welcome to Ochsner Internal Medicine Residency.
I look forward to meeting you,
Caley McIntyre, M.D.
