Medical Education

"Let the young know they will never find a more interesting, more instructive book than the patient himself." – Giorgio Baglivi

Tulane School of Medicine is equipping the next generation of medical professionals with the tools to succeed in a rapidly changing world. One of the nation’s most recognized centers for medical education, more than 10,200 applications were received for 188 seats in the Class of 2015. This year’s class is one of the strongest academically in Tulane’s history. 

Once at Tulane, our students have numerous opportunities during their medical education. We offer joint degrees, including the MD/MBA, MD/PhD and MD/MPH. Our Physician/Scientist program provides an integrated learning environment allowing students to develop the skills to become both excellent clinicians and accomplished scientists.

Tulane students learn in facilities that push the boundaries of medical instruction. The DeBakey Educational Center, filled with multi-media presentation equipment and surround sound, allows students to participate in active learning strategies with web-based technology. In the state-of-the-art Tulane Center for Advanced Medical Simulation and Team Training, students learn and perfect the latest techniques and best practices for patient care and safety in a real-life environment.

Research

"The patient does not care about your science; what he wants to know is, can you cure him?" – Martin H. Fischer

At Tulane, our researchers continue to push the boundaries and break ground in critical studies. With more than 147 studies underway at the School of Medicine, top investigators, cutting edge equipment and financial support are in constant demand. While fiscal year 2010 proved to be a record year for research funding, more support is needed.

Work in cancer, pediatrics, hypertension and diabetes name just a few of the studies conducted at Tulane. Our focus is not only in the purest of research, but also in surgical advances. From invention of the binocular microscope to robotic surgeries, Tulane's School of Medicine remains at the forefront of medical innovation.

"Treat the patient, not the x-ray." – James M. Hunter

Tulane University School of Medicine is committed to our community and the quality of patient care. We continue to stand at the forefront of the movement to rebuild a health system that provides all New Orleans residents with access to high quality, cost-effective, neighborhood based primary care. Our faculty, residents and students are serving the most vulnerable populations throughout the city.

Also, through the Tulane Center for Advanced Medical Simulation and Team Training, we give medical students, residents, practicing physicians, nurses, technicians, first responders and other health care providers the opportunity to learn and perfect the latest techniques and best practices for patient care and safety.

Teaching our students, residents and faculty the importance of providing a safe and informed experience for all patients is a top priority.
