This October, Highland Clinic proudly launched the M.D.U health education program for area high school upper class students interested in the field of medicine. This is a “first-ever” opportunity for Caddo and Bossier Parish schools and upper level students, exclusively brought to you by Highland Clinic physicians. Participating schools opened registration this Fall. Those students who possess the necessary requirements and have shown interest in the field of medicine can register to attend a 35-minute presentation and 15-minute Q&A conducted by a Highland Clinic physician at their school. Participating students also have the opportunity to sign up for a Day with the Doc – ½ day shadow opportunity for students where they are able to see first-hand the physician’s daily routine, possible surgeries, and the intricacies of the medical field. 

With the growth of this program, Highland Clinic hopes to build long-term relationships with area schools to provide students an exploratory opportunity to gain first-hand knowledge about a career in healthcare and in a variety of specialties in the healthcare industry.

Highland Clinic is the only physician-owned multi-specialty clinic in the Shreveport-Bossier City area, and our physician-to-patient relationships are the number one priority. Our physicians are all licensed and certified in their respective medical specialties. Unlike many physicians, Highland Clinic physicians have multiple hospital affiliations which allow our patients to have the choice of where they receive their hospital care. Our system also allows shared medical records and the ability to tap collective healthcare resources and advanced technology. This makes decisions regarding your healthcare and service convenient and thorough no matter which of our physicians you are seeing. Highland Clinic celebrates 100 years of quality medical service (1917 - 2017).
