The Emergency Medicine/ Family Medicine Residency Program at LSU Health Shreveport is a university based program that incorporates community affiliated training. We boast several nationally known physicians on our faculty and have produced many graduates who practice in every type of setting. Residents from our EM/FM program pursue multiple routes after residency, from academics to independent contracts. Some of our graduates engage in global health initiatives, and others include aesthetics and procedures in their practice. Despite the typical trend, options for post-graduate jobs are limitless.
The combined EM/FM program is one of two in the country and has been in existence since 2009. Our program accepts 2 residents a year and integrates two 3-year residencies into a 5 year period. The intern year for each residency is remarkably similar, so there is not much to distinguish the first year of the combined program. Thereafter, our residents alternate between EM and FM rotations in quarterly segments throughout the year, spending three months focusing on EM or FM rotations at a time. Resident fulfill the graduation requirements of each residency independently; there is nothing missed that one would be exposed to if only doing EM or FM training. This means that throughout the 5 years our residents receive weekly didactics in EM in FM.
