Latino Medical Student Association

The Latino Medical Student Association (LMSA) chapter at LSUHSC School of Medicine in New Orleans was established in 2016. We seek to improve health care for the Latino community as well as increase diversity in the medical profession. Our vision is one of "unifying medical students to promote Latino health" and is open to all students regardless of language and cultural background. Club activities include a medical Spanish class, Luke's House clinic alliance, and various diversity initiatives. Find out more by joining the group at
