The pediatric residency program at the Ochsner Health is projected to onboard its first cohort of trainees on July 1, 2024. The program will offer an exceptional opportunity to develop competence in all aspects of health care for children. Our program will strive to provide a model of excellence in the clinical care of children, including preventive, primary and subspecialty care.
A major goal of the Ochsner program is to equip our residents with a comprehensive, in depth understanding of normal growth and development and the diseases that affect infants, children and adolescents. Through clinical experience and intensive faculty instruction, residents will attain a broad knowledge in the field of pediatrics and develop personal excellence in the essential skills of history taking, physical examination and laboratory and clinical procedures. We will approach the child as a whole, integrating his or her acute problem with the child's stage of growth and development.
The Ochsner Health Pediatric Residency Program's mission will support the education of residents on their pathway to becoming an ideal pediatrician. The ideal pediatrician is a life-long learner, dedicated and compassionate clinician, an educator, and an advocate for improving the health and well-being of children and their families.
