LSU Health Shreveport has received a substantial gift that will help educate new doctors. The gift of $1.2 million comes from the Medical Center Clinics, Inc. and will be used to create an endowment to enhance its 29 resident and fellowship programs.
Medical students at LSU Health will get a chance to step out of the classroom and spend some time with kids who have physical and mental disabilities. It's called Camp Tiger, and it's been an annual adventure since 2000.
When an LSU Health student reaches their fourth year, they are presented with an envelope containing where they will be serving their residency training. That is the place where they will, in essence, become a doctor of medicine.
