“We’re very proud of our outstanding teaching and learning spaces that include classrooms and clinical skills labs; multiple simulation suites with high-fidelity manikins, task trainers, and standardized patient exam rooms; a technology-enhanced cadaver anatomy lab; and more. We created a video to help highlight our facilities and talented faculty to future students and families as well as to healthcare employers in the region,” said Dr. Lou Fincher, EdD, Senior Vice President and Dean for the School of Health Sciences. “Our state-of-the-art facilities are specifically designed to promote collaborative, interprofessional education across our programs, which in turn prepares our graduates to be leaders in collaborative team-based care. Our students gain valuable hands-on experience and clinical decision-making skills early in their academic preparation and prior to their full-time clinical rotations. As a result, our graduates are well prepared to make an immediate impact on healthcare when they enter the workforce.”

“The vibrancy of our facility and engagement between all students and faculty is truly unique in the healthcare education landscape,” noted Founding Dean and Professor for the School of Nursing, Dr. Laurie Anne Ferguson, DNP, APRN, FNP-C, FAANP. “We’re pleased to be a leader in healthcare education and training, and proud that so many of our graduates choose to stay in the region or have a commitment to practice rural healthcare in the United States. We know our future nurses will help fill the demand that our region so desperately needs.”

Emory & Henry’s Health Sciences campus was launched in 2014 on the site of the former Smyth County Community Hospital. The 15-acre campus was gifted to E&H by Mountain States Health Alliance (now Ballad Health). The College has since completed two phases of renovation to repurpose the former hospital building to provide over 100,000 sq ft of instructional space for the School of Health Sciences and School of Nursing academic programs. In keeping with the Emory & Henry mission, the Health Sciences Campus also includes space for several collaborative community outreach programs, including the Mel Leaman Free Clinic, a Falls Prevention Center, Children’s Assistive Technology Services (CATS), and more. Since 2018, more than 340 students have graduated from the graduate Health Sciences programs in physical therapy (Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE) - DPT holds accreditation status); occupational therapy (Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education (ACOTE) - OTD has been granted candidacy status); and physician assistant studies (Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA) - MPAS holds continued accreditation status). In addition, the Clinical Mental Health Counseling program will seek accreditation from the Council for the Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP) when eligible after the final semester of the 1st cohort (summer 2023) and the nursing program is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE).
