A Letter from the Fellowship Director

Welcome to our website! We are privileged to serve a very large population at multiple facilities in our community including Univeristy Medical Center of New Orleans, Touro Infirmary, Veterans Affairs Medical Center of New Orleans, Ochsner Clinic Foundation, and Children’s Hospital. By rotating at all of these sites our fellows are able to treat all young and old patient populations with payor sources including Medicare, Medicaid, Private Insurance, Veterans Benefits, and Uninsured. The diversity of pathology and number of patients who provide learning opportunities are incomparable.
