It wasn't that long ago I was in your shoes, browsing residency websites as a medical student and trying to decide where to spend the next three years of my training and life. I'd scour each 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.
This year, the challenges when applying created by the coronavirus pandemic are undoubtedly unique. While nothing can fully replicate all the details of an in-person visit, we are dedicated to giving you a chance to experience what we are all about as a program, a healthcare system, and a city as fully as possible. I want you to get to know our people, get a feel for our hospital and clinic, and take in the sights, sounds, and even flavors our city, New Orleans. I want you learn about not just our simulation curriculum, but our culture; not just our board preparation methods but our community; I want you to find your fit with us.
Welcome to Ochsner Internal Medicine.
I look forward to meeting you,
Caley McIntyre, M.D.
