Interdisciplinary Seminar Series

The Interdisciplinary Seminar Series (IDS), established by the Curriculum Committee in 2008-2009, is designed to bring students and faculty together to discuss topics that may not be represented, or covered in depth, in the standard curriculum. To provide well-rounded educational opportunities, these topics are presented in interactive learning sessions with the exact format determined by the seminar leader(s). Formats may include case-based or problem-based learning, team-based learning, standardized patients or other role-playing of clinical scenarios, or small group discussions, etc.

Third and fourth-year students are required to complete a minimum of 5 topics prior to graduation and should schedule at least 1 seminar per block in order to achieve this requirement. The minimum and maximum number of students who can attend each seminar is determined by the seminar leader. 

Seminars are posted online as they become available. Each seminar has limited space; therefore the sooner students sign up, the more likely they are to be able to attend seminars of their choice.

If students encounter a problem signing up, they should contact Tiffany Palmer by phone: 504.988.6600, or by email: ids@tulane.edu.

Faculty who would like to offer seminars may complete the online Faculty Facilitator Form or contact Tiffany Palmer by phone: 504.988.6600, or by email: ids@tulane.edu.

Dear Students,
 
Please use the link below to access the IDS site.  You will be able to register for upcoming seminars, view completed seminars, and drop sessions that you can no longer attend.  Space in the seminars is usually very limited, and there are many students needing to fulfill the requirement, so please be considerate of your peers. If you find it necessary to drop a seminar, please notify OME by phone: 504-988-6600 or e-mail: ids@tulane.edu, and enter your "drop" status in the online registration system so that another student will be able to take the vacated space. 
 
**If you note any discrepancies in your completed seminar information, please e-mail ids@tulane.edu.  Also, please e-mail if you experience any problems or encounter errors with the registration process.**
