Join the White Coat Society at LSU Health Shreveport

The White Coat Society at LSU Health Shreveport connects alumni donors to current medical school students. Money raised purchases white coats, finances student-selected projects, and supports medical student research.

Host – Help Our Students Travel

One way to reconnect and support LSU Health Shreveport is to volunteer as a host for our fourth-year medical students as they travel for residency interviews. On average a student will have twelve interviews across the country scheduled between October and January. Alumni volunteers can help offset the financial burden of such travel by providing students with free housing, meals, and transportation in the vicinity of their interview sites. Volunteer as an Alumni HOST here.
