E-Packets and Welcome letter!


Class of 2021,

First, congratulations on your acceptance to medical school! With your acceptance into LSU School of Medicine in New Orleans, you have overcome the first, and arguably most difficult, of the many challenges you will face in medical school. Each of you should be extremely proud of this achievement, so take a moment and give yourselves a pat on the back!

Many of you have already requested access to the Facebook group, and if you haven’t, go do that now! The link to the group is in an earlier post, but I will re-link it for your convenience:  LSUHSC School of Medicine Class of 2021.

This website and the class Facebook group are set up to be your two primary sources of information to provide a smooth matriculation into LSUSOM-NO. For some, August will mark not only the start of a new school year, but also a transition to a brand new city, and that can be pretty scary. Therefore, over the next few months leading up to your orientation, both this webpage and the Facebook group will be updated with useful pieces of information such as guides to housing and social life in “The Big Easy”. Please make sure you are checking both periodically so you don’t miss out!

Below are your first few pieces of important information. Please read through the attached “E-Packets” carefully. They act as a checklist of some important housekeeping things that you need to take care of prior to orientation to ensure a smooth matriculation into LSUSOM-NO.


E-Packet A: PDF  DOC— DUE June 30, 2017

E-Packet B: PDF    DOC — DUE June 30, 2017


I have also attached a welcome letter from Dr. McClugage. Take a look at it as it also contains some pretty useful information!
