“When I was looking for a residency program, I wanted a program that I knew was going to have me prepared and ready to do the things that I was going to need to do as an OB/GYN when I finished. The most important thing is that I went to a program that was going to prepare me to be a good physician because at the end of the day, our first act of kindness to our patients is competency. I wanted to make sure that wherever I went, that I knew that I would be competent at the end of four years.”
- Chris Menefee, MD
"Monroe is our rural rotation, located about 90 minutes east of Shreveport with a smaller community hospital. Patients that have a hard time getting access to health care are the ones that we take care of in Monroe. We get that true private practice experience with the realm of obstetrics and gynecology. We treat very sick patients with the benefit of the backup support in Shreveport, if we need to transfer patients to a higher level of care. It's an unforgettable experience of growing more independent and confident in our skills just from being there." "The patients are so grateful and you can visually see your impact on their life."
