GAP Year Resources

It should be noted that none of the GAP year experiences below are specifically endorsed by this course or by Tulane University. Students need to research for themselves the legitimacy, background and strengths of each organization listed. Students should determine whether their organization of interest will provide an experience that would be worthwhile for an individual pursuing a career in medicine. This is an individual decision but one which any of your Pre-Health advisors will be happy to discuss with you.
