Elective Options

If you are currently enrolled in a culinary medicine course at Tulane or one of our partner schools, please access your course at www.culinarymedicine.org/moodle.

We currently offer electives for medical students at GCCM in multiple capacities:

1. Tulane students can take an 8 class culinary medicine elective in their first or second years.

2. Tulane third and fourth year students, as well as visiting students, can do an elective in the kitchen learning culinary medicine basics and helping to run classes for the community and first years. This rotation includes work on your feet in the kitchen preparing for classes, curriculum development and leading class discussions teaching culinary medicine concepts. Rotation may include up to 40 hours/week with some evenings and weekends. Please note that we require a minimum of a 4-week commitment in order to complete this rotation. No exceptions will be made. Rotations are offered year-round. Housing is not provided for away students.

Away students- to complete an application for a rotation, please use VSAS; we are listed under course MED4412.

3. For Tulane 4th years, we offer a month-long away rotation at our partner culinary school, Johnson & Wales University, in Providence, RI, where you will participate in hands-on culinary and culinary nutrition classes as well as academics related to Medical Nutrition Therapy. These are offered 3 months during the year and limited to 4 students. Preference is given to those that have completed the Culinary Medicine elective here at Tulane, either during your first or fourth year. This is generally offered in October, January and April. Please email Chef Leah to sign up.

For more information and to sign up, please email Chef Leah at lsarris@tulane.edu.
