University Hospital provides tours for students and community groups interested in seeing firsthand how the hospital goes about serving its patients.
Elementary school tours are geared toward children in grades K-2 and may include the well baby nursery and emergency department areas. Children also are taken to a room on the pediatric unit and given a light, non-threatening overview of what they might experience should they be hospitalized.
More extensive tours also are offered for high school students interested in pursuing careers in a particular area of health care. Areas visited may include laboratory, radiology and the emergency department.
Tours for other groups may be scheduled as appropriate.
