Study on the Campus of a Regional Medical Center
Experience state-of-the-art learning within a naturally beautiful, vital, and historic area
Health Professions Building, Winchester
Our Winchester, Virginia campus is situated on the grounds of the 400-bed Winchester Medical Center in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley. Having such a health-care facility within walking distance of the school is of tremendous benefit to our students. This campus is ideal for nature lovers and students who prefer to live where they can view the mountains and enjoy the amenities that a smaller, historic, and vibrant city provides.
The building contains several laboratories scattered throughout the building for both student learning and research. The labs are equipped with state-of-the-art instrumentation for selective procedures including HPLC, automatic DNA isolation, and real-time PCR for pharmacogenetic analyses. Within the various laboratories, students learn to compound medicines, dispense medicines, and prepare sterile products.
The building features 190- and 85-seat multimedia classrooms plus numerous smaller classrooms for demonstrations, problem-solving exercises and simulations. All curricular materials are developed as web-based documents, making complete sets of notes, lecture outlines, slides, and simulations available to students prior to each class session.
Finally, the building offers a library, spacious student lounge, cafeteria, and a fitness center. Informal study spaces are located throughout the building and a student organizations room provides a storage area for organization special projects.
