About LSU Health Shreveport
Our health sciences center is home to three post-graduate schools: the School of Medicine, School of Graduate Studies and School of Allied Health Professions. We are also proud of our state-designated Centers of Excellence in cancer, cardiovascular disease and rheumatology.
At the heart of it all is a strong faculty that includes a number of nationally and internationally-acclaimed physicians and scientists. More than 600-strong, they lead our research efforts, educate our students and provide primary and specialty care to patients throughout the region.
Patient care and training take place at our four major partner hospitals: University Health, Willis-Knighton, Shriners Children's Hospital, and the Overton Brooks Veterans Affairs Medical Center. Students and residents also rotate through rural hospitals and clinics in the region. University Health operates our teaching hospitals and clinics in Shreveport and Monroe, jointly sponsoring our trauma center and the Feist-Weiller Cancer Center.
In addition, LSU Health Shreveport has strong community support. The LSU Health Sciences Foundation raises money for campus initiatives and Biomedical Research Foundation of Northwest Louisiana assists with research funding. Educational partnerships include an MD/PhD program with Louisiana Tech University in Ruston, a Master of Public Health program with LSU Shreveport and joint Respiratory Therapy program with Bossier Parish Community College and two community colleges.
