The Family Medicine Residency Program of LSU Health Shreveport in Monroe utilizes a unique combination of resources. Family Medicine is the only primary care residency based at this facility. 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 is the diversity of faculty. The Family Medicine Department is composed of Board-Certified Family Physicians. 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.
