Your Medical Home Away From Home

The Medical Clinic is staffed with a full-time physician and registered nurse who are available to see you for most of your primary health care needs, similar to what you’re used to getting from your hometown clinic.  From allergies & asthma, to cuts or sprained ankles, to mental health services—we specialize in students.  We understand the unique needs of students and provide a welcoming environment for our diverse student body at LCU.

For your convenience, we are located on the second floor of the Mabee Student Life Building. Please call us at 806-720-7482 to schedule an appointment, and we will do our best to serve you.

When x-rays or other diagnostic testing is required, the Medical Clinic staff helps coordinate these services at off-campus medical facilities. Referrals to specialists will be arranged as needed.

  • Student may be required to remain for 15-30 minutes after their allergy injection.

Travel Health

If you will be traveling to a foreign country in the coming months, the LCU Medical Clinic can help you prepare for your trip by researching your destination and gathering the information you need to ensure your trip is successful. It is very important to check your immunization history to make certain you are up to date on all routine immunizations. Other possible medical needs may include prescriptions, such as preventive medicines for malaria, motion sickness, or altitude sickness.

If possible, make your appointment several weeks or months before your trip. The World Health Organization (WHO) advises travelers " consult a travel medicine clinic or personal physician 4-6 weeks before departure if the travel destination is one where exposure to any vaccine-preventable diseases may occur."
