ULM Medical School
If y'all get bored, here is a live stream to the Medical School being built by VCOM. Coming along nicely. Already recruiting class for 2020.

I think it's a great opportunity for the university to get some folks to the are and will definitely raise much needed funds for the university coffers. I'm assuming they will handle the lease of the property to the school similar to what UL is doing with the business park area in Lafayette?

From my understanding, the lease is $1 million a year to ULM. My assumption is that goes to the general fund. VCOM will probably buy at least a suite (they do at the other schools they operate at). Athletes will have access to the staff and new training room has an office for a doctor. This should actually give ULM athletes some of the best access to medical care in the state. Will cut the need of seeing trainer to say "hey, you need to see a doctor" to getting an appointment, to getting transportation, etc.

As far as the medical school goes, the students will be doing their internships throughout the state, not just locally. The DO program should help in providing that "family doctor" and hopefully help with the rural part of the state where there is a real shortage of family practice physicians.

Great Nursing School, great Pharmacy School (PhD), Physical Therapy (PhD) and Occupational Therapy (working towards PhD). Now add the Medical School. Great group of programs to build University around. Now, if Monroe (and our not so bright mayor) could work with the school to really improve the area it would give something to really move Monroe forward. Not sure Mayo has the foresight.

UL should have looked into something like this since there is already a hospital on what was university property near the business park.

I don't know if Baton Rouge would let that happen in laffy. Shocked they let it happen here. Still needed BOR approval to get it. Bruno played some very good politics here

Since the medical school being built is a totally private business and has nothing to do with the medical education system of the state I don't think they could do anything except deny the use of the property. This doesn't make sense as any revenue the universities in the state can use to offset the 50+% budget cuts over the last 10 years should be welcome. The university is in effect acting as a leasing agent for the property. I would assume that if the business ever defaulted the university would become owner of any additions buildings constructed by the medical school or maybe the ability to have them tear down any structures as part of the lease.

This shouldn't be handled any different than the University Research Park area of UL's campus which the university acts as a lessor to a number of different businesses in both the public and private sector.

- National Wetlands Research Center (building owned by the USGS)
- Estuarine Habitats and Coastal Fisheries Center (building owned by the NOAA)
-University Hospital & Clinics which was built on university land and in partnership with the State Charity hospital system which is now managed by the Lafayette General health system and used as a teaching hospital for nurses & doctors
-The University Research Park Hotel, which is a Hilton Garden Inn near the Cajundome which is used in the Hotel Management curriculum as a teach center.
- CGI which is a Canadian tech company and anchor client in a new 50,000 sq-ft facility in which 47% of their initial 400 employees are UL graduates. The build was planned with the goal of tripling the number of degrees awarded in the school of Computing and Infomatics.

Now wait just a minute. You mean to tell me that there was some planning that went into that and that ULL and the city probably sat down and planned some things out to bring business to the area, make some money for ULL and employ graduates locally? What a novel concept!! Not sure if the mayor of Monroe is capable of that level of comprehension. He is too busy spreading the conspiracy theory that a former city council member went behind his back to make sure that Golden Coral built in West Monroe instead of Monroe.

If I wanted to build a Golden Corral in the twin cities I'd probably build it in West Monroe off Thomas Rd too, just because of the demographics of the two cities. Also being near Duck Commander, which ties into the demographics as well.

Yea. Anyone with half a brain gets the move. They are in a good location. Of course, I don't think Jamie has half a brain.

RE: ULM Medical School
VCOM is the leader in concussion research and ULM athletes will have on site MRI and other tools that even LSU doesn’t have. Also, ULM football will have sensors in their helmets for concussion research, from my understanding. Going to be a nice recruiting tool with the level of care afforded our athletes. VCOM is also LOADED. Just the landscaping around the building is over $1M and the building is a beautiful four story building located on the bayou. They are very involved in athletics at all other schools they are at and as John said, buy suites and invest in athletics. Should be a big boon for us.
