The University of Louisiana-Lafayette may soon partner with the state’s flagship university to create a medical school program that will allow students to complete an MD program in three years.

Carolyn Bruder, UL’s interim provost and vice president of academic affairs, said the new partnership would be an expansion of a current program allowing LSU med students to complete the first two years of medical school in New Orleans before coming to Lafayette to spend two years doing clinical practice at University Medical Center. Bruder says the program’s expansion would admit 40 students each year to a three-year “compressed” MD program focused on primary care, rather than the traditional four-year programs in which students also learn a specialty.
