Family Practice Residency Program at
E.A. Conway Medical Center in
Monroe, Louisiana

The Family Practice Residency Program at E.A. Conway Medical Center, in Monroe, La. combines the best aspects of a university medical center and a community hospital. The program provides excellent training for those physicians who plan to practice comprehensive family medicine, including pediatrics, gynecology, and care of inpatients. The program also offers strong training in obstetrics, including C-sections. Eight residents are accepted per year.

The residency program was developed on the following framework:

1. Freedom from competition with residents in other primary care specialties. The Family Practice Residency is the only residency program based at E. A. Conway. There are no Internal Medicine, Pediatric, or junior OB/GYN or Surgery residents at E.A. Conway.

2. A large patient population with diverse medical problems. E.A.Conway provides health care for the medically under-served population of northeast Louisiana, with an estimated service population of 350,000 people.

3. A strong "hands-on" training experience. As residents progress through the program they become increasingly independent, and they become proficient in many different procedures.

4. Frequent conferences and teaching rounds, and an extensive medical library. The forty staff physicians at E.A.Conway all hold faculty appointments at LSU Health Science Center in Shreveport, and many participate in research. Junior and senior medical students regularly rotate at E.A.Conway. This provides the stimulating academic environment that is critical to quality residency training in Family Practice.

5. Newly-opened, modern facilities. A new $41 million inpatient and outpatient facility was opened in 1987 and provides a modern, attractive environment for patient care and residency training.
