Time Out Program

The Tulane Time Out Program encourages applicants, once accepted to Tulane Medical School, to defer admission for 1, 2, or 3 years prior to medical school enrollment to volunteer for Teach for America, Americorps, or the Peace Corps, or to finish a PhD program. An applicant's place in the medical school class will be held during the deferment program. 

We encourage applicants with an interest in public service to strongly consider this option. If you would like more information about the Time Out program, please contact Mike Woodson, PhD, Director of Admissions TUSOM.
