HEAL-X Slideshow

 

HEAL-X (Health Education Adaptive Learning Experience)

Applicants who hold a PhD degree in one of the biomedical sciences are invited to apply to Tulane School of Medicine for the new HEAL-X PhD to MD program that was initiated in January of 2013.

Up to 15 qualified students will be accepted into the program each year, and will have a

 unique expedited 3½-year curriculum. Learning will be accomplished through limited traditional lectures, using instead outcome-based learning objectives, problem-based learning, team-based learning, and on-line resources that allow students to guide their own learning. Early clinical exposure will be used throughout the first 18 months to emphasize and integrate the clinical application of basic science. Students should expect to graduate in 3 ½ years

Applicants must have their AMCAS submitted by July 30 and Secondary applications submitted by October 1. Because of the short timeline for application and the possible backlog of applications in the AMCAS system, applicants are encouraged to apply early. Three letters of recommendation are required via AMCAS, one of which must come from the PhD advisor. In addition the PhD advisor must validate that the PhD degree has been awarded or will be awarded by January, 2015. Selected applicants will be interviewed in September and October. Final decisions will be made beginning October 1 and on a rolling basis thereafter until November 1.
