MILESTONE FOR OUR SCHOOL OF MEDICINE

Eighty-five years ago on October 1, 1931, the LSU School of Medicine welcomed our first class of students. A critical mission of our school then, as it is to this present day, was to address the statewide shortage of physicians in Louisiana and to provide care for the underserved citizens of our state. There is no doubt that the LSU School of Medicine has and will continue to provide the doctors for Louisiana and the best of care to all of the patients we serve.  

We all have much to be proud of, so please join me in thanking the faculty and staff for their commitment to our school and their devotion to the health and well-being of Louisiana.
