Family Medicine Residency

Family Medicine Resident, First Year Charlene H. Chan, M.D.

Charlene is a newcomer to the New Orleans area. She lived in Hong Kong when she was young and has since lived in the Chicago and San Francisco Bay Area. She completed her undergraduate studies at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, where she stayed an extra year to intern with an international Christian organization called Cru. During medical school at Loyola University Chicago, she was drawn to family medicine because of its continuity and comprehensive care. Charlene enjoys the challenge of a new culture and the collaborative and collegial environment at East Jefferson. She likes to read and bake in her spare time, and has recently picked up a new hobby of running without succumbing to heat stroke.”
