The primary mission at Tulane University School of Medicine is to conduct the highest quality departmental educational programs, which will result in academically and clinically prepared physicians, biomedical scientists and public health professionals. Tulane is more dedicated than ever to train physicians who make a difference locally, nationally and globally. To that end, Tulane has developed programs like TRuMEd, Tulane's rural medical education program, as well as accelerated degree programs like the MD/MPH 4-year program, the MD/MS (Bioethics and Medical Humanities) 4-year program, the MD/MBA 5-year program and the 7-year TAP-TP program that includes both undergraduate and medical degrees and is followed by a year of public service through AmeriCorps.
There are numerous international opportunities as well. Students have studied in Japan and Colombia. Others have worked in Rwanda and started a non-profit organization in Haiti. The possibilities are limited only by your willingness to help the world become a better place.
