Residency Application

The Application

Each year we have 2 residents join our five-year combined residency program.

We accept applications for PGY-1 positions through ERAS (Electronic Residency Application Services) and match through NRMP (National Residency Matching Program) only.

The following materials are required for a completed application to Tulane Triple Board Program:

  1. Application through ERAS.
  2. Official medical school transcript.
  3. Medical Student Performance Evaluation (MSPE) / “Dean's letter”
  4. Personal statement.
  5. Three letters of recommendation from faculty (Minimal one letter from Psychiatry or Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and one letter from Pediatrics or Family Medicine).
  6. Step 1 or COMLEX 1 completed with score released in ERAS. (no minimum score requirement)
  7. Step 2CK / COMLEX 2CE and Step 2CS / COMLEX 2PE are not required for interview, however, are required prior to final ranking for the Match. (no minimum score requirement)
  8. We recommend that you complete and submit your ERAS application by the initial release date (September 15).
The Interview

Interviews are conducted on Thursdays and Fridays from mid-October through the end of January.

Interviews are by invitation only. If you are invited for an interview, you will have the option of choosing your interview date. We encourage you to interview early. Decisions on acceptance for an interview usually occur within two weeks of receiving your application.

All Tulane interviews are two day interviews, occurring on Thursday and Friday with an optional Pediatric social event on the Wednesday evening prior. The interview days begin on Thursday morning and are concluded by 4 PM on Friday. Most applicants choose to stay Friday and Saturday night in order to see and enjoy a little time in the Big Easy. Odds are, there will be a festival on the weekend you interview (there are 412 festivals in New Orleans per year), so there will be more than enough to do and enjoy if you choose to stay the weekend with us.

Interview Lunches, Dinners and Resident Meet & Greet: Applicants are invited to join current categorical and combined pediatric residents for an informal meet and greet over drinks and snacks at the Q&C Hotel on the Wednesday evening prior to the Interviews and lunch on Thursday. You will join Triple Board residents for dinner at the Carrollton Market on Thursday night. On Friday, you will meet categorical and combined psychiatry residents for lunch at the Tidewater Library.

What to Expect on the Interview Day: You will be interviewed by faculty and residents from all three components: pediatrics, general and child and adolescent psychiatry.

You'll attend Child Psychiatry Grand Rounds, as well as tour various facilities including Tulane University Hospital and Clinic and Ochsner Hospital. Thursday evening includes an amazing dinner at a famous New Orleans restaurant—so make sure you come hungry! You'll have plenty of time to interact with not only our awesome Triple Board residents, but also categorical residents and chief residents from the three programs. It is sure to give you a great overview of our program here at Tulane.

Tulane is happy to partially subsidize your hotel cost.
