Quinnipiac University

School of Health Sciences Facilities and Resources

The past several years have seen major advances in medical treatments, care delivery models and breakthrough research, and a health sciences education must reflect this. Whether you’re a first-year student or a graduate student coming to us with several years of clinical experience, we offer a range of educational and professional resources available to you so that you can keep on top of those advances. Inside our state-of-the-art facilities, you'll hone the skills, confidence and intuition needed to succeed in a constantly moving and evolving setting.

Cutting-edge centers of study

The Mount Carmel Campus, where undergraduates take the majority of their courses, features our biomechanics lab, athletic training facilities and many other spaces for them to gain hands-on learning early on in their academic journey.

The state-of-the-art Center for Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences on our North Haven Campus is equipped with some of the finest technology offered in academia, and emulates the fast, interdisciplinary team-based environments you’ll work in one day. The 325,000-square-foot facility includes two operating rooms, a model apartment, high-fidelity simulation suites, a diagnostic imaging suite with MRI, CT and ultrasound scanners, physical therapy, occupational therapy and motion analysis labs, and a Standardized Patient Assessment Center.

Undergraduate and graduate students alike can work in our student- and faculty-led clinics, which provide rehabilitation and other forms of care for patients who normally don’t have access to it. One of these clinics, the Lions Low Vision Center, offers free services and equipment for patients with vision impairments. Here, students get to apply their skills in a live environment while interacting with and treating a broad public.
