Tulane University School of Medicine

The KTGF MSP at Tulane University enhances the exposure of medical students to quality child and adolescent education through the general curriculum, enriching group activities, mentoring, and clinical exposure for interested students. Selected from the first year through a mentored application process, the students in the program will receive clinical, professional, and leadership mentorship from our faculty, fellows, and residents throughout their medical school education. The program is currently in its early stage of development; however, future plans include identifying student leaders, increasing the number of mentors and therefore decreasing the student-mentor ratio, and developing potential research and advocacy opportunities.
