The School of Allied Health Professions in Shreveport is pleased to welcome you.  Our history is rich from the many accomplishments of our faculty, staff, students and alumni and any successes are a reflection of what our graduates go on to achieve beyond their time with us.  As we enter a new era of growth and service to the citizens of Louisiana, we are thrilled to be a part of a school-wide system of integrated learning, clinical practice, and discovery.  As part of a larger academic health system our students have opportunities to engage across the continuum of care and with other students from a broad array of health disciplines.  We encourage all of our alumni and potential students to come and see all that is in store as we assume our respective roles in the next generation of team-based health delivery and an academic experience that best prepares our students for success. 

For those of you exploring a course of study with us, we invite you to visit the web pages of each of our seven academic programs. Whether you are looking for a degree in Cardiopulmonary Science, Medical Laboratory Science, Physician Assistant, Communication Disorders, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, or our Master’s in Public Health offered in partnership with LSUS, we think you will be impressed with the quality of the educational offerings and the rewarding opportunities each professional degree affords.

To those who may be in search of clinical services, our full service Ambulatory Clinic maybe exactly what you are looking for. The Clinic offers a broad range of services in Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Speech Language Pathology, Educational Testing, and Psychological Assessment. These include specialty areas of pediatrics, orthopaedics, neuro rehab, wellness, and wound management.
