The Tulane Resident and Fellow Congress is the residents’ voice to ensure the Office of Graduate Medical Education’s mission of striving for excellence in education. The Congress provides a mechanism by which residents can participate directly in GME activities. All current residents and fellows are members of the Congress, and peer-select representatives to serve as the elected body of the Congress. The TRFC serves as a discussion forum to develop ways to improve resident/fellow life, and as a vehicle to provide residents and fellows to raise concerns. Members of the Congress may self-nominate or may nominate other residents and fellows for elected positions. Elections are determined by a majority of resident/fellow votes received for all elected positions.

TRFC Open Forum Dates 2022:
March 31, 2022
