Health Professions Center

In West Burlington, our healthcare programs were once scattered across campus. Centralizing them under one roof has made for more efficient use of resources, cross-discipline collaboration and sharing of technology. This investment has improved student learning and make for skilled graduates prepared to meet the demands of healthcare facilities across the region.

The two-story facility is essentially be a virtual hospital, complete with patient simulation labs, an innovative SCALE-UP classroom equipped with technology designed to accommodate a variety of teaching and learning methods, and an ambulance simulator. The center also features student study spaces throughout.
