Health Professions

Sometimes it's easy to overlook the obvious - and Chesapeake College is the obvious choice for Mid-Shore residents seeking educational opportunities in a comprehensive array of Health Profession programs and services. These programs are responsive to the needs of individual learners and to the requirements of the region's workforce. There are currently a variety of degree, certificate and letter of recognition programs in the Health Professions at Chesapeake College.

The Health Profession programs are offered in our new state-of-the-art, 100,000-square-foot HEALTH PROFESSIONS AND ATHLETIC CENTER (HPAC). The HPAC houses an ambulance simulator, a state of the art digital radiology suite, surgical suite, hospital room and an apartment for simulating emergency response scenarios. The human patient simulators (HPS) are able to accurately mimic any disease, illness or traumatic injury and are physiologically correct so they “respond” appropriately to the medical treatment that the students administer. The center’s classrooms, including one designated for distance learning, are located on the first floor and feature state of the art technology.

The Health Profession programs prepare students as independent learners who are intellectually competent, technologically proficient, skilled in the application of learning, and who share the values and common goals of our culture. In addition, our students will be prepared to compete in the global marketplace.
