Combined Residencies

Nearly unique among training programs, Tulane University offers the rare opportunity to become board-certified in both Psychiatry and Neurology. Whereas psychiatry requires four years and Neurology requires a year of Medicine and three of neurology (total four), the combined program requires six years.

This unusual program, well developed here at Tulane, prepares the resident with extraordinary breadth and depth of training; it allows tremendous flexibility in private practice to care for patients with not only typical neurological and psychiatric diseases, but those patients who require a more nuanced approach. For those who choose to stay in academics it allows dual appointment as well as experience in highly specialized topics such as behavioral neurology.


Combined Medicine-Neurology Residency

Tulane's Departments of Medicine and Neurology administer this five-year program, which leads to board-eligibility in both specialties. The curriculum blends rotations on inpatient and outpatient neurology with rotations on medicine wards, medicine subspecialty clinics, the emergency room and intensive care unit. Applicants must be approved by both departments.
