Now is your opportunity to get a professional photo to use for the GSBS website and for all your other professional needs. This is highly recommended for students who currently do not have a professional headshot AND for students planning to graduate in the next 1-2 years in need of an updated professional picture.

You must sign up for a portrait studio session, in advance, and practice social distancing in line at the portrait studio located at McGovern Medical School (MMS) Basement, Room B.340 [6431 Fannin Street]. Please check UTHealth Shuttle Schedule for an easy trip to MMS.
