The Department of Pediatrics believes the best patient care is delivered when the  major responsibilities rest with the intern and resident while having highly accessible attendings and consultants.  Thus, pediatric residents take active roles in patient care and are the primary care physicians under faculty supervision on all inpatient services and in the Pediatric Ambulatory Clinic (PAC).  We believe that interns must “learn by doing” in order to succeed as a pediatrician.  The large referral area of Ocshner LSU Health assures that experience is gained over a wide spectrum of common and uncommon illnesses.  Supervision and teaching of medical students is another important facet of Pediatric training at Shreveport, and there are numerous opportunities for research as well.
