Physiology Masters Program

The Physiology Graduate Program at Tulane University School of Medicine in New Orleans, LA has developed a Master’s program specifically designed to provide advanced training and understanding of the functions of the body, and to serve as the foundation for the study of medicine. Successful completion of this one-year program will increase your competitiveness for medical schools or equivalent professional programs. The program includes Advanced Medical Physiology, Neurophysiology, Molecular and Cellular Biology, and Translational Physiology.  The program is open for applications all year long, but only starts in the Fall. 

In addition, our program incorporates opportunities for research, interaction with faculty across multiple disciplines, and MCAT prep.  Many of the faculty teaching our medical students are the same faculty teaching students in our master's program.

We feel our program has been instrumental in helping students become more competitive for admission to medical school or other professional programs. On average, 81% of our graduates from 2015-2019 have received acceptance letters to medical or equivalent schools.  Congratulations to all our graduates; we wish them great success in their future careers!
