The Tulane University General Preventive Medicine Residency Program is jointly sponsored by the Tulane University School of Medicine and the Tulane University School of Public Health & Tropical Medicine. The Program is designed to fulfill requirements leading to certification by the American Board of Preventive Medicine and to prepare residents for careers in academic, administrative and clinical preventive medicine. The program has been continuously accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) since 1967.
During the two-year residency program, academic work leads to a Master of Public Health degree from the Tulane School of Public Health & Tropical Medicine. Concurrently, a supervised practicum experience fosters application of the knowledge, skills, and attitudes of preventive medicine and public health.
The mission of the Tulane General Preventive Medicine Residency Program is to provide residents with an accredited, high-quality educational experience that will train them for careers in academic, administrative, and/or clinical preventive medicine. This mission is accomplished through academic excellence in the didactic education of preventive medicine professionals, creative partnerships to learn and advance the practice of public health, engagement in innovative service to the public health community, and active involvement in scientific research or public health-related projects.
Key goals of the program are to:
Tulane's Preventive Medicine Residency Program is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). The most recent site visit was conducted in 2010, and the anticipated next ACGME Self Study Visit date is in 2016.
