Welcome to the East Jefferson General Hospital/Tulane Family Medicine Residency Program! Our university-affiliated, community-based program is unopposed and maintains a greater than 10-year 100% board pass rate, as well as ACGME accreditation without citation. The mission of the EJGH-Tulane Family Medicine Residency Program and its sponsoring Institution is to produce family physicians who deliver compassionate, comprehensive, and patient centered care to the members of our community.
The residency is located in Metairie which offers a close-knit small-town experience with the benefits of a historic city just a few miles away. Most of your professional time will be spent at our 407-bed hospital. However, our residents also rotate in downtown New Orleans at University Medical Center in their level-1 trauma center and at Children’s Hospital New Orleans for inpatient pediatrics.
The strength of our program is the people who comprise it – our core and adjunct faculty, our residents, our residency support staff, and our clinic staff. Our diverse team offers residents an expanse of knowledge garnered through their unique experiences and perspectives. As a result of this outstanding support network, we have been able to weather the recent challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic while continuing to grow and improve. Indeed, it has been the unwavering dedication of everyone involved to maintain the high standards and personalized care that our patients have come to expect.
Family Medicine is a fun and rewarding specialty. Here at the EJGH-Tulane family medicine residency, we offer an exciting and collegial training atmosphere. We are looking for motivated residents with an innovative spirit who are enthusiastic learners with a diligent work ethic and a willingness to advocate for their patients. In short, we are looking for residents who are passionate about Family Medicine! In return, our residency program commits to fostering your intellectual curiosity, providing a safe learning environment, and accounting for your well-being.
