"I have been consistently impressed by the commitment and compassion of both our staff and my peers.  This program surrounds you with people that both want to help and to push you to succeed in your personal endeavors."

"From day one I was expected to be a contributing part of the treatment team in the hospital, operating room, and socially. Tulane became a family very quickly."

"General Surgery Residency is both difficult and rewarding, and Tulane is a great example of what tremendous experiences can come with hard work. I am challenged on a daily basis to practice evidence-based medicine, care for patients, be technically sound, and confront my mistakes. I have also been to advanced laparoscopic training courses, presented my research at multiple conferences throughout the US, taught ATLS in Burma, and spent a semester studying and practicing in France. This program is a great opportunity for those who are truly passionate about this specialty."

WHITE, ASHLIE N

Ashlie White, MD
HO-V (Administrative Chief)

"I am so happy to be in this residency. The residents all function as a team no matter what hospital we're at and every Friday at conference is like a reunion. Of course there are days that are tough, but the path to excellence isn't always easy and takes hard work. The staff recognize this and are amazing teachers while also providing us with appropriate autonomy as we progress.

My career course will be different from others in the residency because I'm also a member of the US Navy and will be a Navy Surgeon and probably an attending the first year out of residency. On interviews I always made it a point to asked if the Chief residents felt like they had good case load and operative experience. The answer at most places is yes, but Tulane goes above and beyond. The difference is that we get to operate with private and academic surgeons which will prepare us better for operating independently once residency is complete.

Lastly, I love getting to experience the great city of New Orleans and the unique culture here."

"I have really enjoyed being a part of this residency program. Here, the residents are very close and everyone strives to be apart of your family. That is not something you get at every program. The attendings are also very approachable and make learning easy."

"The level of mentorship from faculty is very strong and the chief residents set a high standard for what is expected. The diversity of cases that residents are exposed to from the first day of intern year is quite incredible- from “bread and butter” general surgery cases to complex oncologic cases to organ transplants.  Residents are allowed to participate significantly in surgery and in patient care.  In addition, there are plenty of opportunities to pursue research or teach Advanced Trauma Life Support.  Furthermore, New Orleans is one of the best cities in the US and offers a unique environment to find enjoyment outside of the hospital!
