Residency Program in Family Medicine

Family Medicine differs from other primary care specialties by building its residency programs around the concepts of continuous, comprehensive, cost-effective, family centered health care. While Family Medicine residents spend substantial time both in hospitals and clinics, no other type of residency puts as much emphasis on learning to provide continuous care for patients in the outpatient setting, the setting in which most practicing physicians spend the majority of their time.

The three-year Family Medicine curriculum includes training in:

  • Care of adults
  • Pegnancy care
  • Office and hospital procedures
  • Care of children
  • Care of the elderly
  • Human behavior and mental health
  • Community medicine
  • Emergencies
  • Diagnostic imaging
  • Medicine management
  • Experience in the breadth of medical and surgical problems and their diagnosis, treatment and prevention.

The Department cooperates with the excellent Family Medicine Residency programs in the area. We are also exploring regional sites for possible development of residency training in the future. At the present time, we do not sponsor, nor there are specific plans for creating a Tulane Family Medicine Residency. We encourage interested trainees to investigate the excellent programs in the State, many of which regularly serve as training sites for Tulane students.

The Department of Family and Community Medicine has sought working relationships and affiliation agreements with Louisiana Family Medicine Residencies in order to facilitate collaboration in education and research. We have a strong relationship with most Family Medicine Residency Programs in the State. Click here to read about all of the Louisiana Family Medicine Residencies. For additional information on student rotation opportunities, contact the Department of Family and Community Medicine.

The Directory of Family Practice Residency Programs published by the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) is an excellent and comprehensive source for information on Family Medicine Residency programs. This directory lists each program in the United States, and covers many topics in detail, including faculty, staff, administration, accreditation, size, salaries, etc.
