Being involved in the evacuation from New Orleans and subsequent recreation of the Tulane University School of Medicine in Houston in Fall 2005 were unique experiences for medical students. Fortunately, this transition did not compromise the quality of their education, and student performance was unchanged.
1.However, the school’s return to New Orleans in Summer 2006 was also met with unique obstacles and unknowns. Although Tulane’s students could never have predicted the life-changing events that occurred in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, their experiences have permanently and uniquely shaped their medical education. Here, a second-year medical student and a third-year medical student describe their medical education in New Orleans in the post-Katrina period.
