Grambling State University Partners With LSU Health Shreveport School of Medicine

Historically Black Grambling State University in Louisiana has entered into a partnership with Louisiana State University Health’s Shreveport School of Medicine. The agreement represents the desire of both parties to increase the number of African American students from historically Black colleges and universities in Louisiana who apply to the LSU Health Shreveport School of Medicine.

The Guaranteed Interview Program attests that Grambling State students who meet specified criteria will be invited to interview with the admissions committee of the LSU Health Shreveport School of Medicine.

“The mission of Grambling State University has always been to create opportunities that facilitate scholarly advancement,” said Grambling State University President Rick Gallot, Jr. “The memorandum of understanding with LSU Health Shreveport creates a seamless pathway for our students to pursue advanced degrees in the medical sciences.”

G.E. Ghali, chancellor of LSU Health Shreveport, added that “this landmark agreement provides LSU Health Shreveport an opportunity to propel our message that every student belongs to our learning communities, and it further helps us increase the percentage of African American students who apply, matriculate, and ultimately graduate from our institution.”

    Let’s be clear LSU Health Shreveport School of Medicine. This initiative is akin to the NFLs “Rooney Rule” in which you’re doing nothing “guaranteeing an interview” for thos who are “qualified”. Truth be told LSU Health Shreveport School of Medicine, why would any highly qualified native born Black American from Grambling would want to attend there as compared to other top tier PWI medical school that’s light years ahead both academically, research, and inclusion. In other words, this is nothing to boast about LSU Health Shreveport School of Medicine and especially Grambling.
