 Physician Assistant (PA) Alumni

The program kicked off a 25th Anniversary Scholarship campaign to assist in recruiting top candidates to become future PA alumni of LSU Health Shreveport. 

Sponsor and attend the Short White Coat Cloaking Ceremony on September 19, 2020. As part of the 25th Anniversary Campaign, alumni can sponsor the short white coat for first year PA students. Sponsoring affords you the opportunity to write a note of encouragement to the student and place it in the pocket of the white coat. Last year we had twenty-eight PA alumni join us for the cloaking ceremony. We look forward to growing this event yearly. For more information, contact the program at (318) 813-2920.
