Tulane Rural Medical Education (TRuMEd)

The Tulane Rural Medical Education program is designed to recruit and educate medical students who intend to enter practice in a rural area or small town in Louisiana or the Gulf South, particularly in Family Medicine, other primary care fields or general surgery. TRuMEd uses an admissions process that assesses then encourages the selection of candidates who are most inclined to practice in rural areas; providing students with advisors and role models; provision of experiences in rural clinical settings, including early preclinical summer experiences. Applying to TRuMEd is a concurrent process with application to Tulane University School of Medicine.  Learn more about TRuMEd >>
