Family Medicine Residency Program

The Family Medicine Residency Program at Ochsner LSU Health - Monroe (OLH-M) utilizes a unique combination of resources.  First, at OLH-M there are no other primary care residencies with whom Family Medicine Residents must share educational opportunities.  This leads to the opportunity to learn by doing rather than learning by observation.  In the long run, we believe that physicians are most comfortable with those things which they have learned by doing.

A second strength of the program at OLH-M is the diversity of faculty.  The Family Medicine Department at OLH-M is composed of Board Certified Family Physicians and Internists.  The close personal and working relationships between faculty and the residents create a milieu which is conducive to medical education.

The residency plays an integral role in the provision of health care to a medically underserved population of more than 300,000.  There is a tremendous opportunity to see a diversity of pathology in the full spectrum of its clinical stages.
