Clinical Laboratory Sciences

Campus Sites


The main campus is located on Galveston Island at the University of Texas Medical Branch. All CLS programs are offered at this site.

Online/Distance Education

Our online programs offer qualified students an opportunity to complete a majority of their coursework at a distance. Periodic onsite weekend laboratories in Galveston hybrid classrooms are to provide student and staff safety during the current pandemic. The goal of these programs is to provide critically needed laboratory personnel for health care.

Note: Clinical sites may vary because of changes in staffing patterns in order to maintain appropriate student-instructor ratios and to ensure quality educational experiences. Clinical placements are subject to change up to the time that training begins.
