Tati, Robichaux Named as Director, Associate Director of Baton Rouge General's IMRP Program

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.”
