The School of Graduate Studies offers PhD degrees in five programs, MS degrees in Biomedical Science (thesis) and Medical Sciences (non-thesis), and a combined MD-PhD degree program. Successful applicants can enter directly into one the five programs or can enter though the Interdisciplinary Graduate Admissions Portal (IGP) in which students choose a mentor and program after the first semester.

Working with supportive faculty mentors, our students are preparing to become biomedical scientists, contributing to advances in healthcare and biotechnology, and educators, training the next generation of basic scientists, physicians and other healthcare professionals.

The School of Graduate Studies was established as part of the LSU Medical Center (known as LSU Health Shreveport today) in 1965, with degrees offered in five basic science departments. The first class was accepted in 1974 and the first PhD degree awarded in 1978. On March 25, 2004, the Louisiana Board of Regents approved administrative separation of the School of Graduate Studies in Shreveport from the School of Graduate Studies in New Orleans. The School of Graduate Studies in Shreveport was placed under the leadership of the LSUHS Chancellor in 2004. Dr. Sandra Roerig was appointed the first Dean of the school on April 1, 2004 and served in this role until her retirement in 2017.
