Student Health Services at The University of Texas Pan American is here to meet the health care needs of our students so they can focus on their studies. As a UTPA student you have paid a Medical Service Fee that allows you to be seen at the clinic as often as needed. The office visits are free of charge as are most educational services. There are low cost charges for medicines, supplies, and any needed lab tests.
The Student Health Clinic offers the same types of services you can get from your family doctor and much more. Our services include general medical care as well as specialty clinics in Women's Wellness, Skin Care, and STD Screening. We also have routine immunizations and TB testing required by many educational programs at UTPA. Our Class D pharmacy can fill most prescriptions written in the clinic and carries a selection of over the counter items.
Hours of operation for the Fall 2013 Session are:
Monday through Thursday 8:00 AM till 7:00 PM
Friday 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM and Closed Weekends
We are located at 613 North Sugar Road in the Student Health Center building just south of the Wellness Recreation Sports Complex.
We see students on a walk in basis but you will spend less time waiting and be allowed to choose your health care provider if you call ahead for an appointment at (956) 665-2511.

The UTPA Student Health Service is accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, Inc (AAAHC). UTPA has the distinguished honor to be the first in the UT system to hold the AAAHC accreditation. There are currently only 7 college health facilities accredited in the state of Texas.
Accreditation is a voluntary process through which an ambulatory health care facility is able to measure the quality of its services and performances against nationally recognized standards. Currently only 5% of college health centers are accredited by national accrediting agencies.
