Baton Rouge, La. – Baton Rouge General recently named Dr. Vasudev
Tati as Director and Dr. Sara Robichaux as Associate Director of their
Internal Medicine Residency Program (IMRP) for the upcoming academic year,
which begins in July 2017.
Since 1991, Baton Rouge General has provided quality educational and research
opportunities to residents and students through its graduate medical education programs.
Dr. Tati joined Baton Rouge General as an IMRP faculty member in 2011,
the program’s inaugural year. Three years later he was appointed
Associate Program Director in charge of curriculum, working closely with
current Program Director Dr. Venkat Banda. In his time as APD, Dr. Tati
grew the educational activities for the residents, led the team to a 100%
board pass rate in 2015 and helped expand the program to its current size
of 30 residents.
Dr. Sara Robichaux’s journey with Baton Rouge General began in 2011
as one of the first Tulane LEAD students. During her residency, she was
awarded the LEAD Program’s Outstanding Resident Physician by Tulane
University Owl Club and served as third-year Chief Resident. Dr. Robichaux
is a member of the IMRP faculty and as APD, will be responsible for instructional
and scholarly activity as well as a focus on ambulatory training.
“These programs are essential in training clinicians who will deliver
the kind of exceptional patient-centered care that Baton Rouge General
is known for,” said Dr. Banda, BRG’s Graduate Medical Education
Designated Institutional Official. “Drs. Tati and Robichaux are
smarter, younger, and better looking than I am, and I’m confident
the future is bright under their leadership.”
