Welcome to the Department of Pediatrics at Tulane University School of Medicine in New Orleans. Our clinical enterprises, educational endeavors and research programs are growing at a steady pace. Our department now has 53 full-time faculty members.

In addition to providing outstanding clinical care, the Department of Pediatrics at Tulane is endowed with superb clinician-scientists who conduct cutting edge research in multiple areas such as human genetics, cancer, infectious disease, asthma and growth and development. Because faculty are vital for successful change, the Department of Pediatrics is regaining its critical core of physicians through aggressive faculty recruiting. We want our faculty to make a difference in the lives of not just our children but the whole community.

The training environment at Tulane provides one of the most diverse residency experiences in the country. Residents are exposed to a variety of primary and tertiary health care systems, including primary care regional hospitals, private hospitals and Tulane University Hospital. Our combined residency program with the Ochsner Health System also provides the resident with a balanced mix of primary care and subspecialty training.
