Centers and Resources


Facilities that reflect modern medicine

Located in a $100 million state-of-the-art facility along with the professional schools of nursing and health sciences, the Frank H. Netter MD School of Medicine offers its students simulation laboratories, examination and patient assessment rooms, high-tech classrooms, operating rooms, and extensive electronic resources — and the opportunity to rotate through departments at not just one affiliated hospital but a half-dozen, each with its own culture and perpsective.

The School of Medicine’s three Institutes of Excellence regularly conduct deep academic research in the areas of primary care, rehabilitation medicine and global public health. The institutes allow students to devote themselves to the study and practice of these specific areas of medicine, and also provides them with additional academic resources and opportunities for professional development.

Featured Facilities

A place for hands-on, high-touch, industry-standard learning

Our Center for Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences, located on Quinnipiac’s beautiful North Haven Campus, brings together all of the elements of a flexible, thoughtfully designed, team-oriented learning environment. It nurtures and reinforces a core goal shared by all of the three schools: to graduate health care practitioners who will be the driving force for a more collaborative, efficient, patient-centered health care system.

The Center for Interprofessional Healthcare Education offers innovative opportunities for students to learn and practice together, including simulated team-based learning exercises, interdisciplinary grand rounds and clinical rotations. The Student Ethics Committee, which mirrors all of the functions of multidisciplinary hospital ethics committees, further prepares students in medicine, nursing and the health sciences for a cooperative, team-based approach to patient care.
