Marissa Ferreyros and Skyler Speer, students at Natchitoches Central High School, spent Jan. 30 at the LSU Health Shreveport- School of Medicine in Shreveport to participate in the Day with the Doctors program.

Marissa and Skyler were among 42 students from North Louisiana chosen to spend a day with medical staff and students at LSU Health Shreveport- School of Medicine.

Day with the Doctors is a one-day, interactive program that provides Louisiana high school students with an opportunity to experience and observe a day’s activities on a medical school campus.

Students interact with faculty and medical students, discuss health careers and medical school, as well as learn basic medical diagnostic skills.

Hands-on training includes learning how to listen to breath and heart sounds, checking reflexes, suturing bananas and improving communication and listening skills in working with patients.

LSU Health Shreveport- School of Medicine faculty members and staff answered questions regarding educational prerequisites, medical school admissions, medical school costs, and personal preparation for the commitment of a health career.

This health career enticement program is coordinated and sponsored by North

See Doctors page 7A Louisiana AHEC and LSU Health Shreveport- School of Medicine to educate future health professionals about the demand for healthcare professionals in rural and underserved areas of Louisiana.

Student participation is by invitation only and is limited to high school students residing in North Louisiana who have successfully completed other enticement programs sponsored by North Louisiana AHEC.

Students must be enrolled as a high school sophomore, junior or senior and have a 3.5 grade point average or better.

“We are pleased to sponsor this important opportunity for young people throughout North Louisiana to have an experience at the medical school,” stated Susan Moreland, Executive Director of North Louisiana AHEC. “Rural Louisiana has a shortage of physicians and experience has taught us that “growing our own health professionals” is the key to filling this demand.” Marissa Ferreyros and Skyler Speer, students at Natchitoches Central High School, spent Jan. 30 at the LSU Health Shreveport- School of Medicine in Shreveport to participate in the Day with the Doctors program.
