Tulane School of Medicine and Baton Rouge General Medical Center opened Tulane's Baton Rouge clinical campus with its first group of third year medical students in the Spring of 2010. Students in the LEAD (Leadership, Education, Advocacy, and Discovery) Program have unique opportunities to participate in governmental and administrative activities involving health programs for the state of Louisiana.
Experienced community physicians serve as teachers, mentors, and role models at this new satellite campus. All Tulane School of Medicine students complete their first two years of pre-clinical training in New Orleans, then move to Baton Rouge for the remainder of their training. Third and fourth year medical students have access to innovative teaching models that provide unique learning experiences and opportunities. This curriculum includes a valuable longitudinal ambulatory care experience, typically not offered in a traditional program. Students also have the unique opportunity to participate in rotations in healthcare policy and operations with various state agencies and healthcare organizations. Interdisciplinary education and training occurs with the Baton Rough General nursing students and students from the University of Louisiana at Monroe College of Pharmacy, also sharing the Baton Rouge General campus.
The Baton Rouge campus of Tulane School of Medicine is located at Baton Rouge General's Mid City hospital. State-of-the-art technology connects the Baton Rouge Campus to the main Tulane campus in New Orleans. Twelve third year students are currently receiving their training at the Baton Rouge campus.
