About Us

The Rural Outreach Initiative at Tulane University School of Medicine is a program to address community health needs in rural communities of the Gulf South.  A top strategic priority for the Dean of the School of Medicine, this effort aims to make a positive difference in both the alarming dearth of physicians as well as the poor health indicators found in the region by creation of community-academic partnerships.
