The primary mission of Louisiana State University Health Shreveport is to Teach, Heal, and Discover, in order to advance the well-being of the State, region, and beyond. Research is essential to discovery. As such, medical student education and participation in research is a critical part of our mission.
Participation in research allows our students to distinguish themselves from their peers, which increases the likelihood of being accepted in the residency of their choice.
There are numerous opportunities for medical students to be involved in research on our campus. This includes curricular elements in the preclinical and clinical years, the medical student research program, research electives, a research track of distinction, and our MD/PhD program. Additionally, students at any stage of their training may volunteer to participate in research with faculty mentors from various departments.
Available Research Opportunities
The Office of Medical Student Research matches research faculty with medical students who are interested in participating in research projects in both Basic Science and Clinical areas of interest. The projects listed in the Research Project Database were provided by faculty members for this purpose.
