Qualified LSUS Students Guaranteed Admission Interviews For LSU Health Shreveport Med School
MED SCHOOL INTERVIEW MOU - LSU Health Shreveport School of Medicine has signed a Memorandum Of Understanding (MOU) with LSU Shreveport for a program which will guarantee that eligible LSUS students will receive an admission interview with the School of Medicine.
At the official signing ceremony yesterday afternoon, LSUS Chancellor Larry Clark said the MOU gives many underprivileged students who meet the academic requirements a better chance at pursuing the medical profession.
“The fact that there’s going to be a guaranteed interview program for very high performing students that would be in our pre-med students, to qualify for an interview, that’s just absolutely huge for these students,” Clark said.
David Lewis, Dean of the LSU-Health Shreveport School of Medicine and Interim Chancellor, who graduated from LSUS added that the memorandum provides a quicker pathway for LSUS students to be considered for med school.
“The students that come from this institution are outstanding,” Lewis said. “We have always done our best to get them in and get them interviewed but this will even expedite that process going forward.”
Student requirements for the Guaranteed Interview Program eligibility include a 3.5 GPA, a score of 504 on the Medical College Admissions Test and good disciplinary standing at LSUS.
