A message from our Chief Medical Education Officer

The Children’s Hospital Medical Education Office was established in 2019. Its mission is to improve the healthcare of the children of Louisiana through excellent training programs.

Children’s Hospital is fortunate to be affiliated with two academic institutions, LSU Health Sciences Center and Tulane University. To accomplish this mission, we foster these institutions through supporting educational programs and their leaders, on-boarding of learners, recruitment, coordinating conferences, facilitating scheduling of rotations, and meeting accreditation mandates.

The Medical Education Office is committed to the well-being of our patients, students, residents, fellows and faculty members by fostering with a humanistic learning environment that emphasizes patient safety, patient experience, and teamwork.
