Welcome to LSUHS School of Medicine

For over fifty years, we have been educating healthcare professionals who excel at the highest levels in academia, private practice and industry. Students consistently rave over experiencing a rigorous education in a family atmosphere where diversity and success are celebrated. Further strengthening the student experience are vibrant, safe communities in north Louisiana which offer an affordable cost of living.

LSU Health Shreveport is home to the only allopathic medical school in north Louisiana and one of only three in the state. Medical students interact with patients from their very first semester and learn from a combination of lectures, small groups, standardized patient exercises and clinical skills throughout their training.

For those with a heightened interest in research, the school offers joint PhD programs with both the School of Graduate Studies and Louisiana Tech. Students can also opt to enroll in the Research Distinction Track to or apply to become part of the American Medical Student Research Journal, founded in 2013 by our medical students. 

Join us as we Teach, Heal, and Discover.
