Aquatic Veterinary Medicine – Yes, There Are Doctors for Fish

Chelsea Hester, doctoral student in the UT School of Veterinary Medicine, will present “Aquatic Veterinary Medicine – Yes, There Are Doctors for Fish” Friday, September 27.

Although there are fewer veterinarians specially trained in aquatic medicine than in terrestrial animal medicine, these professionals treat aquatic patients in general practice, zoos, aquariums, food animal, and laboratory settings. Come hear about a goldfish that needed a water wheel-chair, the $1.8 million fish, and other odd aquatic patients.

The UT Science Forum takes place Fridays from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. in the Thompson-Boling Arena Cafe (located at 1600 Phillip Fulmer Way), Room A. Guests are encouraged to bring their lunch or purchase it from the arena. Each presentation is followed by a Q&A. The event is free and open to the public.

We have temporary parking passes available for our guests who do not have UT parking passes. An RSVP is required for the pass. To request a pass, visit our website at
