Our classrooms and labs are furnished with equipment and supplies to enable instruction and practice in adult and pediatric neuromuscular, integumentary, cardiovascular and pulmonary, and musculoskeletal systems.
Labs take place in the Westbrook College of Health Professions' "skill labs," which are modeled after clinic and hospital environments, enhancing a student's ability to practice in any health care setting. The classrooms are equipped with computer and video technology, allowing faculty and students to use multi-media presentations to meet the needs of students' with varying learning needs.
In addition, as a DPT student you benefit from:
The Harold Alfond Center
for the Health Sciences
The Harold Alfond Center for Health Sciences is a state-of-the-art laboratory and educational facility. This three-story building houses labs and lecture halls for our College of Osteopathic Medicne and other health professions. It places UNE at the national forefront of health and life sciences education. Our DPT students use the center's Gross Anatomy Lab during both years one and two.
Motion Analysis Lab
The Motion Analysis Lab allows you to observe and measure human motion that cannot be observed with the naked eye, and to quantify the forces in the joints and neuromuscular and muscle systems.
The research you do in this technologically-advanced 1500-square-foot learning space allows you to apply the theoretical knowledge you gain in the classroom to projects investigating such crucial matters to your field as better understanding the laws of sports biomechanics, or the most effective approaches to ACL rehabilitation.
Clinical Simulation Lab
As DPT student, you utilize our Clinical Simulation Program to apply the knowledge you gain in the classroom to realistic clinical situations before putting actual patients at risk.
Guided by skilled instructors, you participate in simulations specifically designed to enhance your clinical aptitudes. Rather than just hearing about and reading about difficult or unusual cases, you experience them by treating our high fidelity patient simulators and patient actors in scenarios that mimic real life.
