Welcome to the Odessa campus of the TTUHSC School of Allied Health Sciences. The Odessa
campus provides a premier learning environment for the Allied Health Sciences students
with state of the art classrooms, laboratories, computer resources, and student support
areas ranking among the finest within the State of Texas . Students at the Odessa
campus are provided an educational structure for classroom and laboratory instruction
by on-site faculty supported by a distance education format linking the faculty among
the Odessa, Amarillo, and Lubbock campuses.
Odessa is known as the "City of Contrasts " and is located in the heart of the Permian
Basin midway between Ft. Worth and El Paso , Texas . The region is rich with natural
resources enabling the ranching and oil industry to flourish throughout the years.
The climate in Odessa is mild and semi-arid. The low humidity and cooler evenings
provide very comfortable living conditions for the more than 240,000 residents of
the Permian Basin area. The Odessa/Midland area provides a number of cultural and
recreational activities including museums, productions at the infamous Globe Theatre,
the Confederate Air force, professional hockey and minor-league baseball. Other activities
including fishing, snow skiing, hunting, and hiking can be accessed with only a few
hours drive from Odessa .
The Odessa Health Sciences Center campus also includes a School of Medicine and a
School of Nursing. The School of Allied Health Sciences and the Health Sciences Center
have tremendous community support with a designated Advisory Council comprised of
over thirty highly involved and influential area volunteers. The area is also the
home of two community colleges and a four-year university.
