Center for Health Sciences

Center for Health SciencesLocated in the historic Five Points of downtown Albemarle, North Carolina, is Pfeiffer University's state of the art Center for Health Sciences.

The Center for Health Sciences is home to the Master of Physician Assistant Studies and Master of Occupational Therapy programs. The facility features the Center for Advanced Clinical Simulation Education (CACSE). The CACSE will include four simulated ICU rooms, one Surgical Suite, and one Emergency Department Trauma Bay; each of these rooms is equipped with high fidelity, computerized human simulator. Additionally, the CACSE will feature a fully functional clinic with six exam rooms, where students alongside our faculty, will provide much-needed community health services. Graduate clinical simulation education at Pfeiffer University brings life into books and books into life, hence bridging classroom instruction and clinical practice.

 The PA program has two dedicated technologically advanced classrooms and a multipurpose room for collaborative learning activities. Students will also receive instruction in a cadaveric Human Gross Anatomy Lab, where they will directly explore the human anatomy. Gross anatomy labs have been designed to give each student the opportunity to actively dissect and study the human body. In addition to lab instruction, students will participate in team-based learning activities where they apply anatomical principles to clinical scenarios.
