White Coat Sponsor

Supporting LSU Health Shreveport Medical Students

Gift a White Coat - Encourage a Future Physician

The White Coat Ceremony is an important rite of passage for each medical student during their second year at LSU Health Shreveport, marking the change from academic to patient-centered learning. As an alumnus, you can play a vital role in this milestone occasion by becoming a White Coat Sponsor. Your gift will allow us to purchase a medical student’s first short white coat that is presented at their White Coat Ceremony. Members of the sophomore class will receive their coats before faculty, family, and friends as they take an oath affirming their commitment to the highest standard of ethics in patient care.

The White Coat Note

In the pocket of each coat will be an envelope with a card that has a message of encouragement from one of our alumni. When you become a White Coat Sponsor, we ask that you offer a few words of wisdom to the next generation of LSU Health Shreveport physicians.
