Resident Initiative in Global Health at Tulane [RIGHT]

[supported by the Piper Global Health Fund]


The Resident Initiative in Global Health at Tulane (RIGHT) program will provide skills and training to residents interested in a career path in global health. By offering opportunities for residents to expand their medical knowledge and experience internationally, the program aims to add to the community of ethically-guided advocates for evidence-based holistic approaches to equitable care, locally and abroad.

This program is in addition to your current residency.  You must be in good standing during your residency program to participate in the RIGHT Program.


The Piper Global Health Fund

The Piper Global Health Fund is named in honor of Dauphinot Derek Piper, a 1999 graduate of Tulane University School of Medicine and a 1991 Tulane University graduate. While at Tulane School of Medicine, Derek discovered his passion for international medical relief work. His experience at Tulane created a lifetime of selfless devotion to caring for those in need throughout the world. When Derek tragically passed away in 2006, his family and friends created the Piper Global Health Fund to give future generations of Tulane residents the opportunity to explore their own passion for global health

Join us in aiding future generations of Tulane physicians today. The Piper Global Health Fund can offer our students a life and career changing opportunity.

Your gift can be a one-time contribution, or you can consider making this fund a priority every year moving forward. The greater the investment, the more funds are available each year for our students. If you are interested, Tulane will establish pledge commitment for this fund with you (up to five years).
