Research Opportunities

How Do I Get Involved in Research?

TUSOM students have plenty of opportunities available for getting involved in research. The most important step in the process is to connect with a faculty mentor. This page is designed to help you do that! Generally speaking, the best time to focus on a research project is during the summer between your T1 & T2 year, since you have plenty of time to do so. However, you can get involved with research at any time during your medical education. 

You may want to familiarize yourself with common ETHICAL ISSUES in research before starting any project. 

If you are a T1, and would like to get involved in summer research IN NEW ORLEANS, please check out these funded opportunities:

 

If you would like to get involved in research, please see "Basic/Bench Research," "Clinical/Translational Research," "Population/Public Health Research," or "Call for Student Researchers" on this page.

Reminder* #IAMSE23 Poster
& Oral Abstracts

Deadline December 1, 2022

 

Dear Colleagues,

As a reminder, the International Association of Medical Science Educators (IAMSE) is currently accepting abstracts for oral and poster presentations for the 27th Annual IAMSE Conference. The IAMSE meeting offers opportunities for training, development, and mentoring, to meet the needs of learners and professionals across the continuum of health professions education.

This year, through the support of our partners at the Mexican Association of Faculties and Schools of Medicine (AMFEM), we are happy to accept poster abstract submissions authored in Spanish for presentation at a dedicated Spanish-language poster viewing session during the annual conference. Please note that this is offered only to poster abstracts. 

Students who would like feedback on a draft of their abstract prior to final submission should email it to the Student Professional Development Committee, care of Stefanie Attardi at support@iamse.org, by November 10, 2022. This offer includes any student's poster abstract submitted in Spanish.

 

Submit Your Abstract by December 1

 

Please note: The first time you enter the site, you will be required to create a user profile. "Even if you submitted in previous years, you will need to create a new account. All abstracts for oral and poster presentations must be submitted in the format requested through the online abstract submission site. Once the submission deadline is passed, authors will no longer have access to their abstract submissions.

There is no limit on the number of abstracts you may submit, but it is unlikely that more than two presentations per presenter can be accepted due to scheduling complexities. Abstract acceptance notifications will be returned in March 2023. Please contact support@iamse.org for any questions about your submission.

We hope to see you in Cancun next year!

Thank you,
IAMSE

Hey everyone,

 

Hope T1 is going well! I'm emailing about our MSG group, the Tulane Trauma Research Interest Group. If you're interested in trauma surgery and research, please add your info to this sheet so that we have your info!

 

We meet on the weekend at the beginning of every month to go over any new projects from attendings that need student help, check in on existing projects, and help troubleshoot any other issues. Attending monthly meetings is mandatory to be a member of the group. We're a new MSG club, so we're working on putting together an intro talk and other opportunities to learn about research methods that will help you in med school and beyond. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to any of us. For those interested, we will send info on our next meeting towards the end of the month.

 

Best,
