Mini Medical School

Mini Med School at LSU Health Shreveport began in the spring of 2012 when 30 community members put on white coats and got a taste of medical school. The program has been repeated at least twice a year, with more than 300 Mini Med graduates in the Shreveport-Bossier area! Taught by medical school leadership and faculty, “students” learn about important health topics and the latest developments in healthcare fields. Sessions are typically held every spring and fall.

LSU Health Shreveport is holding its next session starting August 1, 2017. This four-week program is held from 5:30-7 p.m. Tuesdays through August 22.
