Tour our D.P.T. Facilities
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 healthcare setting. The classrooms are equipped with computer and video technology, allowing you to use multimedia presentations to meet varying learning needs.
In addition, you benefit from the Harold Alfond Center, the Motion Analysis Lab, and Interprofessional Simulation and Innovation Center.
The Harold Alfond Center
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 Medicine and other health professions. It places UNE at the national forefront of health and life sciences education. You use the center's Anatomy Lab during both years one and two.
The Human Sensory and Motor Performance Laboratory
The Human Sensory and Motor Performance Laboratory is a three-room shared research space in Blewett Hall on UNE’s Portland Campus.
The lab is dedicated to the measurement of pain and neuromuscular performance. Each room is approximately 200 sq ft., contain treatment tables, and are situated to allow investigators to perform blinded evaluations.
Equipment available for research testing includes a Medoc TSAII Neurosensory Analyzer and pain testing algometers; a GE Logiq E diagnostic ultrasound; hand-held dynamometry; and a transcranial magnetic and direct current stimulation units.
Interprofessional Simulation and Innovation Center
As a D.P.T. student, you utilize our Interprofessional Simulation and Innovation Center (ISIC) to apply the knowledge you gain in the classroom to realistic clinical situations without putting actual patients at risk.
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 learn 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.
