ABOUT  |  SCHOOL OF MEDICINE

   

We have been educating healthcare professionals who excel at the highest levels in academia, private practice and industry for more than 50 years.

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.

 

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. 

The School of Medicine counts a Faculty of over 500 with a class size of 150 since 2021. Plans are underway to increase class size to 200 over the upcoming years. This expansion is being made possible due to the construction of the Center for Medical Education.

Louisiana State University Health Shreveport (LSUHS) strives to cultivate a diverse and inclusive culture that supports equity, acceptance, and respect for the differences in others. The institution is committed to achieving excellence in fulfilling its mission by utilizing the rich talents of individuals who contribute different backgrounds, perspectives, and experiences to the work and learning environment and who reflect the varied populations of Louisiana. As such, the institution adopts a definition of diversity that embraces a broad spectrum of human expression and characteristics that include but are not limited to race, ethnicity, gender/gender identity, social and cultural attributes, abilities, sexual orientation, religion, rural or metropolitan background, military or veteran status, and age. In addition, diversity also includes life experiences, record of service, and other talents and personal attributes that enhance the work and learning atmosphere. LSUHS is dedicated to building an inclusive and diverse community through the recruitment, enrollment, hiring, and retention/graduation of students, faculty, staff, and leadership who meet this definition of diversity.
