Mini Medical School
Mini Medical School at LSU Health Shreveport began in the spring of 2012 when 30 community members put on white coats and got a taste of what medical school is like for our students.
There are now more than 300 Mini Med graduates in the Shreveport-Bossier area! Taught by LSU Health Shreveport leadership and faculty, “students” learn about important health topics and the latest developments in healthcare fields. Sessions are typically held every spring and fall.
