1. Student Run Homeless Clinics (L3s and L4s)

Hey L3s and L4s,

Every year, the LSU Student-Run Homeless Clinics rely on third and fourth year medical students to operate. If you’d like to volunteer, please use this link to sign up for Thursday clinics at the New Orleans Mission or Saturday clinics at Ozanam Inn. Our primary concern right now is scheduling volunteers for this week, however you can go ahead and sign up for any future clinics this semester if you’d like. You do NOT have to have previously volunteered at either of the SRHCs to volunteer now. Feel free to contact us at the emails below with any questions about the clinics.

Thank you,

Olivia Sturm, OI Clinic Director osturm@lsuhsc.edu

Colton Walker, NOM Clinic Director cwal12@lsuhsc.edu

4. GHHS – Student of the Month

Dear Student Doctors,

The Gold Humanism Honor Society (GHHS) wants to give students a chance to honor their peers through a ‘Student of the Month’ award. The idea behind this monthly award is to highlight under-recognized students who go above and beyond the call of a medical student whilst embodying the ideals that serve as the foundation of GHHS. Some of these principals include respect, integrity, compassion, and empathy; all together these qualities shape a medical student into a role models for humanistic care.

Each class will fill out a SurveyMonkey nominating peers who stand out through their actions. Two students from each class will be selected every month. This is not about the quantity of votes but rather the quality of each vote. One well thought out vote will be weighted more than how many votes a person accumulates, so make sure to include a few lines about why this person should be recognized in the survey.

Here is a link to the September survey, which will be open until October 1. So if you see a classmate doing something great this month, nominate them using the following link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/5HKLRR8

To promote the idea of appreciating students who normally fly under the radar or have not been recognied for their work in the past, GHHS elected members along with elected RISE representatives will be excluded from selection. For a list of the GHHS/ RISE members visit: https://www.medschool.lsuhsc.edu/ghhs/ .

Please contact Katie Melder (kmelde@lsuhsc.edu) or Spud Induru (sindur@lsuhsc.edu) with any questions.

5. Office of Admissions- Interview Tours

The Admissions Office is looking for some additional help with giving the interview tours. Most of the dates have been filled with L1/L2s, but there are some interview days that fall in the middle of testing weeks. I know most of you will be on rotations, but if you have the day free, we would appreciate your help.

Most of you will have given tours before, but just as a reminder, you get 3 PDE-B credit hours. The tour will run from 10:30 – 1:30.

Here is a link to the Google doc where you can look at the available dates and sign up: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1gxv_m8YbrgO-upZQmS4fWdbgPTMe4YEV-JRmDRNPYws/edit?usp=sharing

Please contact Katie Melder (kmelde@lsuhsc.edu) or Christine Settoon (csetto@lsuhsc.edu) with any questions.


Please send all announcements to lfree@lsuhsc.edu by Friday at 5:00 PM
