EJGH hosts two residency programs, both of which are competitive and challenging and offer excellent opportunities to learn in a dynamic setting with some of the most gifted minds in the region. Although hundreds of qualified applicants vie for a position in our Family Medicine and Podiatric Medicine & Surgery residency programs, only a small number of the most outstanding candidates are selected each year.
In addition to the high esteem East Jefferson holds for our residents, not only as students, but also as the capable physicians, our programs offer quality leadership from the EJGH faculty, a competitive salary and benefits package, and a fantastic location just a few miles outside one of the most vibrant cultural centers of the nation—New Orleans.

Our students have the opportunity to learn in real-world settings with practicing physicians, nurses and emergency specialists. These programs not only offer students a variety of opportunities when they enter the workforce, but also ensure that our community continues to benefit from an outstanding pool of healthcare professionals.
