We are excited you are considering a visit to the Texas Biomed campus. Due to COVID-19, we have temporarily suspended community tours and campus access to visitors; however, we still want to share all the amazing science and resources we have. We have several tour programs available, all virtual.
High School groups are encourage to apply for a virtual visit through the Texas Biomedical Forum, a sister organization aimed at supporting the science of Texas Biomed through outreach and fundraising. The Forum manages our high school tour program, which consists of a 20-30 minute scientific or veterinary presentation followed by a Q&A with our scientists on specific dates in the Spring and Fall semesters. Currently, the tour is provided through a link to our Campus Visit Video that classes can enjoy before or after the science seminar. To register for one of our Spring high school tours, visit the Forum website.
College Tour groups are also being provided an opportunity to meet and talk with our scientists and/or veterinarians and veterinary pathologists, in addition to our Virtual Video. If you are interested in hosting one of our team members for a virtual seminar, please fill out the form below, and our education department will be in touch.
