Texas A&M CHSD Visiting Scholar Program


The unique "Architecture for Health" Program at Texas A&M University was founded in 1966. The Center for Health Systems & Design (CHSD) serves as a backbone of the program, and promotes collaborative research and education in three major areas: Protecting Health, Enhancing Health and Restoring Health. Current CHSD fellows are composed of distinguished professors, world-renowned researchers and preeminent practitioners in the abovementioned areas.


The purpose of the visiting scholar program aligned with the Center for Health Systems & Design is to enhance the Center’s—and therefore, the College of Architecture’s, ability to actively reach out to international/domestic communities and attract the most promising scholars in the world.


Since the beginning of our Visiting Scholar Program, we have hosted 28 students from 8 different countries.
