The LSUHS Advantage ...

In our School of Medicine, students develop meaningful relationships with faculty from day one as they are taught in the classroom and labs by the same doctors who will be teaching them in hospitals, clinics and research settings. These faculty members represent 18 clinical departments, which encompass over a dozen highly specialized divisions in addition to five basic science departments.

As a part of a new curriculum, students begin engaging with patients starting in their first year, further strengthening collaborative learning which is a hallmark of the new curriculum. The student experience is further enriched by standardized patient experiences and clinical skills training. Students also have the opportunity to complete a research distinction track.
