APPLICANTS

Thank you for your interest in the Tulane Triple Board Residency Program.

We do currently offer a MS-4 Triple Board med student rotation. For information on the rotation or for more information regarding Triple Board in general, please click here.

Ready to apply? Applying to Tulane is simple; just follow the steps below:

A. The Application
Make sure that you fulfill all of our admission standards:

  1. Applicants to Tulane must be graduates who will have successfully completed their medical school curriculum with distinction by June of current academic year.
  2. We require successful passage on the USMLE Step 1 at the time of your application, and passage of Step 2 by the end of your medical school training.
  3. There is no minimum board score for admission.
  4. We do not grant any VISA’s through our residency program.
  5. Admission to the residency program is solely through participation in the ERAS and the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP). No one is accepted for admission outside of the match. To apply, go to the ERAS site and complete the standard application. Make sure you are registered for the NRMP match. Applicants can choose to interview for both Triple Board and General Psychiatry or categorical Pediatrics. Arrangements will be made to do these interview all in one trip to New Orleans, if scheduling allows.

B. The Interview

Once we receive your application, we will have a decision for you regarding whether you have been accepted for an interview within two weeks of receiving your application. Interviews are by invitation only. If you are invited for an interview, you will have the option of choosing your interview date. We encourage you to interview early.

  1. The Interview: All Tulane interviews are two day interviews, occurring on Thursday and Friday. The interview days begin on Thursday morning and are concluded by 4 PM on Friday. Most applicants choose to stay Friday and Saturday night in order to see, enjoy and pass a little time in the Big Easy. Odds are, there will be a festival on the weekend you interview (there are 412 festivals in New Orleans per year), so there will be more than enough to do and enjoy if you choose to stay the weekend with us.
  2. What to Expect on the Interview Day: Your two-day interview will include one-on-one interviews with at least two faculty members or chief residents from each of the three programs. You'll attend Child Psychiatry Grand Rounds, as well as tour various facilities including Tulane University Hospital and Clinic and Ochsner Hospital. Thursday evening includes an amazing dinner at a famous New Orleans restaurant—so make sure you come hungry! You'll have plenty of time to interact with not only our awesome Triple Board residents, but also residents and chief residents from the various programs. It is sure to give you a great overview of our program here at Tulane.



C. Accommodations

Tulane does not pay for travel expenses or hotels, but we are happy to help you with making arrangements in the New Orleans area. The LePavillon hotel, a beautiful historic downtown hotel is our host hotel. They offer a discounted rate of $89/night for Triple Board applicants. To make reservations, please contact Lisa Farrell via email at lfarrell@lepavillon.com. You will meet at the interview site on Thursday and we will provide rides for Thursday evening dinner, as well as rides back to the interview Friday morning and finally back to the hotel or airport on Friday afternoon. If you are not staying at the host hotel, we will do our best to provide transportation if we can accommodate it with our residents or faculty, however, we can't make promies.


The Residency Program Office is located on the 14th floor of the Murphy Building at Tulane University School of Medicine (131 S. Robertson, New Orleans, LA 70112).
