Galveston is only 45 minutes away from Houston, the nation’s fourth largest city.

UTMB currently consists of four schools (Medicine, Nursing, Health Professions, and Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences) and is adding a School of Public Health in 2022. The institution owns a network of hospitals and clinics that provide numerous opportunities to conduct clinical research. Within UTMB, total grant funding for FY2020 was $168.9 million, an increase of $29.4 million from the previous fiscal year.
