Fostering Learning and Student Growth
Leverage technology to get real-world experience for high-stakes procedures. Patient simulators react much like a live patient would – they have vital signs, they voice discomfort, and can blink, sweat or bleed. From privacy curtain areas to scrub sinks to hospital beds, Chamberlain’s SIMCARE CENTER™ facilities closely replicate hospital and clinical settings.
If you’re eager to bring your passion for healthcare to those around the globe, our Global Health Education Program is a fantastic opportunity. Students are able to gain a deeper understanding of cultural and economic differences through their real-world experiences. The program can be completed in place of the required community and multiculturalism health courses.
I have never gone to a school where it actually felt like family. I want success with my peers, the faculty want success from you. Just to have that community of constant support makes it home. This is my home and I love it here.
