Before beginning research at Tulane University, all research personnel must complete the CITI Training Program; this can be completed at www.citiprogram.org." You can find the CITI Training Guidance Document here.

                                            Education Day Poster Presentations
All School of Medicine and School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine faculty, staff, residents, and students are invited each year to participate in Education Day by presenting their medical education research in poster format and/or attending the event to learn about the work of others in the Tulane Health Sciences community.

Education Day is held each year in the spring. During the event, the Teaching Scholar Award is presented to one outstanding educator/scholar chosen by the Society of Teaching Scholars. A nationally-know speaker presents a workshop on a topic relevant to medical education.

To join the Medical Education Faculty Development Cohort, contact the Instructional Specialist in the Office of Medical Education here. Throughout the year, professional development opportunities will be provided, as well as a forum for discussion.
