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 around. 

In addition to our main curriculum, for those students also desiring some exposure to clinical medicine, the M.S. Program will facilitate voluntary participation in several clinics. Students who would like to volunteer and gain research experience, clinical experience, or shadow a doctor, the MS program will facilitate students working in a clinic focusing on providing basic healthcare to veterans. Students can participate in research, grant writing, protocol creation, and in the clinic. Students will have a chance to interact with faculty and researchers from Tulane School of Medicine, the VA healthcare system, Pennington Biomedical Research Center, and Headquarters Marine Corps.This program also facilitates learning the materials tested on the MCAT.
