Center for Medical Education


The Center for Medical Education is more than a building. It is a critical investment in sustainable economic growth which will improve the overall health of Louisianans. It is the opportunity to advance research leading to discoveries that will enhance lives regionally and beyond. We have reimagined our mission to TEACH, HEAL, and DISCOVER in order to propel LSU Health Shreveport into a new era of medical education and research.

“The Center for Medical Education is a bold venture and one of the most impactful and visionary projects taken on by LSU Health Shreveport since the medical school began over 50 years ago. This transformative endeavor is critical to a brighter future for LSU Health Shreveport and the community it serves. An investment in the Center for Medical Education is a great investment in the future of Louisiana’s health and economy.”   
Armand Roos • LSU Health Sciences Foundation Chairman of the Board

This new 155,000 square-foot building has four levels and a culinary wing. Completed in 2023, the Center for Medical Education becomes the path for delivery of modern medical education through team-based, active learning which is supported by a large clinical skills center designed to teach and assess critical patient skills in a simulated clinical setting. Over 25,000 square feet are devoted to a fitness center and wellness space, plus an enhanced dining area. New research opportunities are possible with the construction of specialized laboratories to study emerging viral pathogens, contributing to knowledge that will prevent or mitigate the next viral pandemic.
