Degrees such as nurse practitioner, nurse anesthetist physical therapy, occupational therapy, physician assistant and rehabilitation counseling are offered at the graduate level. Students are required to complete an undergraduate degree in addition to specific course pre-requisites, obtaining a minimum amount of direct patient contact and earning a minimum score on the Graduate Record Examination (GRE). The specific details for enrollment will vary on based on which program a student is interested in applying to, though most programs within these areas of study typically operate on a competitive admissions protocol.
After obtaining a bachelor’s degree and satisfying the required pre-requisite work students will complete their course of study at the LSUHSC or other medical schools, contingent upon acceptance into their programs. A full listing of these programs is available below.
