    I like the idea of attending this one year program at Tulane very much but I have some doubts. I think it might be too much research because they require 6 credits each semester. It sounds like a lot so if anyone been through it please let me know what that's like. Also they don't offer the classes that I want to really prepare me for the future like Histology, Anatomy, and Biochem. Anyone who knows about this program please comment

    Six credits of research is not anything at all...How do you figure how how much research is a lot? Compare the amount of research credits you have to take to the number of class credits that are mandatory. If research credits exceed a third of the required total credits, that's a lot.
    Also, how many semester of research credit are required? And how are these credits graded? That's what I would consider.
    Also, you know, most programs have quite a few extra-departmental/extra-collegial elective credits. You should be able to register for classes like Biochem, histology, immunology, anatomy, as a grad student...

    mosoriire you bring up good points. That's one of the reasons I posted to get some answers from any students that have had experiences with this program. Hopefully some will comment soon.
