Pediatrics - Tulane-Ochsner Pediatrics Residency - Program Information

The best training involves three main elements outside of your own commitment to learning:  a great patient base, excellent faculty, and colleagues that will support you.

Patient Base

Our patients come from all over Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama, with a deep and diverse range of pathology and representing remarkably different cultural contexts.  By accident of geography, culture and climate, we see things here that you might not see anywhere else, in addition to the bread-and-butter diagnoses that comprise a pediatrician's typical daily work. 

Faculty

Our faculty members work in every pediatric subspecialty, and are nationally renowned in their fields of practice. Our subspecialists provide innovative care and discover new treatment strategies through research.  Without a significant number of fellows, our residents work directly with these leaders.  In addition to the traditional subspecialties, our general pediatricians will show you how to work with kids diagnosed with chronic medical conditions.  Meghan Howell runs our NICU-graduate clinic and Mary Rossi treats the growing number of children with obesity and diabetes.  Charlie Kantrow is the general pediatrician overseeing the neuromuscular clinic and Danny Bronfin is the general pediatrician that coordinates the craniofacial team.  Kim Mukerjee leads a team working with refugee children.  Our residents work with excellent faculty that are role model pediatricians.

Residents

Lastly, but importantly, the people you train beside make a difference.  Our team is composed of residents from many different backgrounds, but they are animated by the same values.  Your standardized test scores do not predict the quality of pediatrician that you will become.  Instead, we are looking to fill our residency with physicians driven to improve the wellbeing of children.  Whether driven by community advocacy, research, or innovative clinical care, we enjoy working with motivated physicians that are passionate about pediatrics.  Our residents learn from one another, support one another, and inspire one another as well.
