Interested in receiving a tour of the Veterinary Medical Center at The Ohio State University? If so, you’re in the right place. Below you will find information on when tours are given, what you’ll see and how to schedule a tour.
Tour guides are members of the OSU Pre-Vet Club and are available to show your group through the Veterinary Medical Center. Tours are usually given Saturday afternoons when the Medical Center is operating under emergency hours only—so that the atmosphere is less hectic.
On your tour you will be exposed to many aspects of veterinary medicine, including large and small animal facilities. You will see the small animal exam, treatment and surgery rooms, the small animal wards and a few other points of interest. Similar areas are presented in the large animal area of the Medical Center where you will also get to see the large animal radiology equipment and padded recovery stalls. In addition the tour includes a walk through the Daniel M. Galbreath Equine Trauma Center where horses are kept separate from the other large animals due to their increased susceptibility to post-operative infection.
All of this and more will be presented when you come for a tour of the Veterinary Medical Center. For more information about the Medical Center in general, check out the Veterinary Medical Center homepage. To schedule a tour of the Medical Center, contact Kevin Jacque [dot] 3 [at] osu [dot] edu or Hannah Ghindea [dot] 1 [at] osu [dot] edu, OSU Pre-Vet Club Tour Guide Coordinator.
Are you a Pre-Vet Club member interested in giving tours? Serving as a tour guide is a great way to learn the layout of the Medical Center and help others gain an appreciation for what the OSU Veterinary Medical Center has to offer. Tours are scheduled as needed so you won't have a set schedule but will be contacted when a tour guide is needed.
Once you contact the Tour Guide Coordinator (Kevin Jacque [dot] 3 [at] osu [dot] edu or Hannah Ghindea [dot] 1 [at] osu [dot] edu) and sign up to be a tour guide, you will receive all of the relevant information needed to give a successful tour.
