VCOM-Louisiana Campus

Welcoming its first class in 2020, VCOM's Louisiana campus is a partnership between VCOM and the University of Louisiana-Monroe. Located next to ULM's athletic grounds and along the Bayou DeSiard, the brand new construction represents some of the most modern medical teaching facilities available. Features include a 4,100-square-foot anatomy lab, high-tech simulation center, and a 3,300-square-foot lab for osteopathic manipulative medicine training.

The University of Louisiana-Monroe has the state's only public school of pharmacy and schools of nursing, kinesiology, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and other health sciences, offering many opportunities for research and educational collaborations.

 

Each year's class admits about 150 medical students, for a total student body of 600, with the first physicians graduating in 2024.

Meeting a Powerful Need in the Delta Region

This new campus will address a physician shortage in Louisiana, which currently ranks 39th in the U.S. for per capita primary care physicians. 81% of the state has been designated a health professional shortage area by the Louisiana Department of Health, leaving lots of room for VCOM graduates to make a real difference for the health of its citizens.
