Resource Guide

On behalf of everyone here, I would like to welcome you to Tulane University's School of Public Health & Tropical Medicine! I am Dr. T.J. Stranova, your Associate Dean for Student Affairs and Admissions. You have joined one of the world's premier academic institutions...and whether you plan to practice internationally or domestically, you will leave Tulane ready to make a difference in the world! So I hope you brought along your thinking caps and dancing shoes too...you have joined the culture of one of the world's most unique and incredible cities...New Orleans, Louisiana!!!

SPHTM New Student Orientation happens in August and January, but we wanted to share some valuable information that will help you navigate SPHTM and New Orleans in the meantime. Please see the resource guide below that contains “pro tips” on everything from parking, to technology assistance, to things to eat and do in New Orleans. This guide was created by a previous student, so we hope it is helpful.
