Special Programs

Tulane Rural Medical Education (TRuMEd)

The Tulane Rural Medical Education program is designed to recruit and educate medical students who intend to enter practice in a rural area or small town in Louisiana or the Gulf South, particularly in Family Medicine, other primary care fields or general surgery. TRuMEd targets the production of more rural practitioners by addressing key elements identified in similar and successful programs around the country. These elements include: an admissions process that assesses then encourages the selection of candidates who are most inclined to practice in rural areas; providing students with advisors and role models; provision of experiences in rural clinical settings similar to where they will practice in the future, including early preclinical summer experiences. Applying to TRuMEd is a concurrent process with application to Tulane University School of Medicine.

Tulane Technology Commercialization Course

The Tulane Technology Commercialization Course gives students the knowledge and tools to transform life science technologies into entrepreneurial ventures. In this course students have the opportunity to take an intensive course providing hands on experiences while working in teams with researchers in the medical school and the New Orleans Bio-Innovation Center. At the end of the course completed business plans are presented to panels of experienced entrepreneurs who provide substantive feedback as to the plan's viability and required next steps for development and funding. This course aims to train the bioinnovators of the future who are able to bring ideas from paper to reality. For more information, contact Ralph Maurer, PhD, Visiting Assistant Professor in the A.B. Freeman School of Business at rmaurer@tulane.edu.

Tulane Accelerated Physician Training Program (TAP-TP)

The Tulane Accelerated Physician Training Program allows undergraduates to complete their medical and undergraduate degrees within six years, with an additional year of public service. The program, offered jointly through the School of Medicine and the School of Science and Engineering, includes two years of undergraduate study followed by a year of public service through AmeriCorps/VISTA and the Tulane Center for Public Service.

Tulane LEAD Program

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.
