    There is not a law school in the state north of Baton Rouge. How do we know we can't get one in North Louisiana if we don't try.

    "Med school" is intentionally misleading, of course, as is the inaccurate implication that NLU has any jewels in their academic crown at all.

    The Louisiana Board of Regents today approved the application for licensure submitted by New York Institute of Technology to operate a College of Osteopathic Medicine at the University of Louisiana Monroe. NYIT is a private, not-for-profit institution of higher education with domestic campuses in New York (Manhattan and Old Westbury, Long Island) and Arkansas. NYIT and ULM have a nonbinding Memorandum of Understanding through which the two entities are exploring establishing a Monroe site of New York Institute of Technology College of Osteopathic Medicine (NYITCOM) on the ULM campus. More information will be released soon.

    Osteopaths are considered every bit the equal of mds.Their medical schools are virtually the same as other medical schools. So while we come up with all the reasons we can't do anything they have outmaneuvered us.

    Not really. This school will be competing with Caribbean med schools for students. The only students who will go there are ones who can't get in to real med schools or public DO schools. They will always carry a negative stigma with them as satellite DOs plus non-competitiveness for decent residencies as well as unbelievably huge debt loads of possibly over $700,000 per student unless their parents shell out $320,000 for them to be debt-free. With a primary care focus of the school really out of necessity due to lack of other options, those poor students will be paying on their debt until they retire, if they ever can. Only a fool would attend that school.

    And it's not ULM's osteopathic school, and they won't be ULM students nor get ULM degrees. It's a private, remote satellite campus of a DO school headquartered in New York. ULM is simply serving as host. It will benefit the Monroe economy by bringing in 400 students to spend student loan money, but I'm not sure how it benefits ULM other than giving them the opportunity to spread fake news.

    Yeah, doctors through history have felt the same way about chiropractors and optometrists. Seems some of them do quite well . . . . regardless where they got their degree.

    Time will tell. If nlulm went for a Masters in Nursing, that would have major impact. UTSA is doing quite well with our Louisiana BSNs in getting their masters in Texas.

    Yeah. Also from that article, "The direct financial benefits for ULM will be minimal." Bruno is simply hoping that by spinning out fake news that ULM has a med school will somehow boost their enrollment and academic reputation. Any student who would choose ULM for that reason is too stupid to make it at Tech.

    Then the NYITCOOM students will utilize ULM's resources like the fitness center, library, dining facilities, health unit, parking, admin's time and effort, etc. at the expense of actual ULM students.

    They'll just have a handful of basic science professors in Monroe. Most of their lectures will be teleconferenced from the flagship campus in New York. Their limited staff in Monroe will pretty much just be a few assistants/coordinators/library helpers/financial aid reps/registrar. They only employ 51 people in Jonesboro, and that includes several standardized patients who'll work only a couple days per month.

    Ask, and ULM will pretend to give it to you.

    Of course they were just making a play on the Ark - La - Tex. I did the same with my screen name here with a play on Houston Texan. But it would have helped to put hyphens between all three or none at all.

    Of course. Just thought it was funny that in an article about North Louisiana tech sector, with a headline with La Tech in it, not a single mention of Louisiana Tech.

    Glad we didn't purchase it. Apparently Christus will give it and $6.5 million to take it off their hands!
