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.
