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 >>
