Tulane’s Office of Graduate Medical Education is dedicated to supporting the transition from medical student to practicing physician. Our faculty are dedicated and experienced clinicians, educators, and scientists who use their years of experience to help residents and fellows develop into exceptional physicians and scholars who encompass excellence in each of the core competencies. We see our role as an important one — to create a learning environment that facilitates the growth of the next generation of physicians and leaders.
Our clear goal must be to be a true leader, a beacon of hope in our community and the nation for decency, respect and inclusion. This is why I accepted the position as DIO. And you have my word that this is my priority every day.

The Office of Graduate Medical Education is responsible for ensuring that all residents and fellows at Tulane University School of Medicine are provided an accredited educational experience of the highest quality.
Our staff puts an emphasis on equity, diversity, and inclusion because we believe exposure to different cultures and ways of life is the only way to create well-rounded, forward-thinking physicians. By creating a diverse and equitable learning environment, we give our residents and fellows the opportunity to have real, meaningful community engagement that will help them to grow as people and medical professionals. Our goal is to continue investing our resources into creating a medical workforce that is representative of the rich diversity found in New Orleans’ unique community and culture.
