Thank you for your interest in Ochsner’s Ob/Gyn residency program! I am very proud of our past and current residents and look forward to adding new faces to our Ochsner family. I know this year has everyone anxious (again) due to restrictions on visiting electives and the need for virtual interviews. We are all feeling that. Like you, our goal is the right person for the right residency. We are looking for applicants that fit with our culture, values, and energy.
Let me share our program’s AIM statement: “By investing 4 years in the Ochsner Ob/Gyn residency program, we are committed to producing competent, diverse physicians who have excellent clinical, surgical, and social skills to be leaders in Women’s Health and possess a solid knowledge base that ensures successful completion of the basic qualifying (written) and certifying (oral) board examination for Obstetrics and Gynecology who are also advocates for the diverse population that we serve.” We have built our program around this to align our educational offerings with our goals for each of our graduates.
This year has again given us obstacles with the delta variant, vaccination rates, and now a major hurricane. I am extremely proud of how my residents have responded to these obstacles and the resilience they have shown. The residents and faculty have come together during this difficult time to take care of our patients as well as to support each other. This adversity has once again shown how this program will continue to provide excellent care to our patients while training excellent residents.
I am most proud of the camaraderie we have in our program! We work hard, but we play hard too. We are a social group, even with social distancing. We are a family and strive to support each other in any way we can. And finally, we value the resident’s input and have created opportunities based on their desires, such as Wellness Fridays, an off-campus resident retreat, departmental graduation celebrations, holiday parties, and much more.
Please look around our website to see the structure of our program and get a feel for bond that is at the heart of our program.
I look forward to (virtually) meeting you!
Anna White, MD, FACOG
