Permian Basin Campuses
Providing Clinical Opportunities in West Texas
TTUHSC at the Permian Basin was established in 1979 in the basement of the Medical Center Hospital. In 1999 Midland the Physician Assistant Program was launched. The primary mission is to train physician assistants to provide clinical opportunities in primary care in rural and underserved populations in West Texas.
Odessa opened the doors to its patient practice in June of 1999, to provide increased access to primary and specialized health care for patients of the Permian Basin. This 81,374 square-foot facility houses patient-related services on the first and second floors and administrative offices and academic programs occupy the third floor.
Our campus provides a premier learning environment with state-of-the-art classrooms, laboratories, computer resources, and student support areas. Our teaching facilities rank among the finest within the State of Texas.
