Residency Speed Dating

The AMA is proud to announce the 4th Annual Residency Speed Dating!

When: Tuesday, April 24, 5-7pm
Where: BRI First Floor Lobby

Rotate through, or "speed-date", a variety of different residency programs where you will learn about scores, expectations, and requirements for the different fields, gain knowledge about the career field, hear real residents' experiences, meet program directors, and finish with allotted time for questions you may have. This event has been created as an opportunity for our very own students to get a glimpse of "a day in the life of a resident." This is a wonderful chance to learn about future career options and make valuable connections with leaders in our LSU community. Food will be provided.


National Denim Day

As part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month, the LSU Health Shreveport campus is participating in National Denim Day on Wednesday, April 25. Students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to wear jeans that day, if approved by their program directors and/or if they do not have clinical obligations.

About Denim Day:
Denim Day has become a worldwide event that calls on community members and elected officials to stand with survivors of sexual assault to wear denim in protest of a rape that occurred in Italy in 1997. This is a time to coordinate events and raise awareness about sexual assault, and its myths and misconceptions, in order to support survivors and bring an end to this crime. Be an active participant in educating and empowering other women and veterans. Make a fashion statement on Denim Day on April 25 by wearing your denim! Learn more at denimdayinfo.org/about/.
