If you've ever thought about going to Medical School, but you're not sure whether it would be the right fit for you, here's a low-cost opportunity to find out.  

LSU Health Shreveport has two events planned for later this month and next that just might answer your questions.

First of all, LSUHSC is planning a repeat of its Mini Med School program.  Everyday adults with a possible interest in attending medical school will hear lectures from some of the same faculty and experience some of the same hands-on activities that they would encounter in a real medical school class.  The course will span four Tuesday evenings, from 5:30 until 7:30 each evening, on September 24 and October 1, 8 & 15. Cost for the course is $40 and that includes a white coat.  Past Mini Med grads can take the course again for $20.

Then, on Saturday, September 28, from 10 am to 3:30 pm, LSUHSC medical students will be holding a pre-med workshop for interested college students.  Cost to attend is $75 until September 23rd and includes breakfast, lunch, and workshop supplies.  The workshop will include a guided tour of the facilities, hands-on training, a Q&A period with current students, and remarks by Chancellor Robert Barish and Admissions Dean Scott Kennedy.  Here's a photo of some of last year's workshop participants:
