The Physiology Graduate Program at Tulane University School of Medicine in New Orleans, LA has developed a Master’s program specifically designed to provide advanced training and understanding of the functions of the body, and to serve as the foundation for the study of medicine. Successful completion of this one-year program will increase your competitiveness for medical schools or equivalent professional programs. The program includes Advanced Medical Physiology, Neurophysiology, Molecular and Cellular Biology, and Translational Physiology. The program is open for applications all year around. 

Students can participate in research, grant writing, and protocol creation. Students will have a chance to interact with faculty and researchers from Tulane School of Medicine, the VA healthcare system, and Pennington Biomedical Research Center.  This program also facilitates learning the materials tested on the MCAT.

"In the span of a year and a half, I was able to get my MCAT score from a 493 to a 509. I would be remiss if I did not give some credit to the Masters of Physiology program at Tulane for this accomplishment". -Andy Ginsberg
