The Center for Medicine, Nursing, and Health Sciences

At the heart of learning

The Center for Medicine, Nursing, and Health Sciences boasts operating suites, simulation rooms, and 24 teaching labs to train medical and health care practitioners. The North Haven Campus is designed to encourage interdisciplinary learning among students within all the schools.

Interprofessional Learning Space

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. The center features 24 teaching labs, 26 seminar and team-study rooms, and 48 pro-section stations, with a bonus found at few other places: space for medical students to work alongside — and learn from — nursing and health science students, as well as lawyers.

The concept of a single campus shared among diverse graduate programs is a driving force for a more collaborative, more efficient, patient-centered health care system.

Unique Learning Environments

Practice space that prepares you for real life

One of the elements that sets us apart from other medical schools is our commitment to simulating the front lines of modern patient care. Our facilities include expansive skill labs with life-like anatomical models and equipment that mimics what is found in real clinical settings. We provide health assessment laboratories and 7 hi-fidelity simulation suites, including 2 operating rooms and multiple state-of-the-art adult, pediatric and neonatal mannequins poised in various stages of care and need.

Our medical and nursing students get an authentic feel for their future careers in what we call “S-PAC,” our Standardized Patient and Assessment Center, a 16-room facility that simulates outpatient clinical offices and provides a realistic environment for students learning clinical skills. Standardized patients, often experienced actors, are trained to exhibit a variety of symptoms and ailments. Students learn critical (and often poorly taught) skills of visual diagnosis, history taking, physical examinations and patient communication. Students record information in a simulated electronic health record system, learning how to document findings and order tests.

The S-PAC is just one example of how we help you get a feel for work in hospital settings. The experience develops the kind of instincts, confidence and experience you’ll need to respond to a wide range of patient needs.
