Why Chesapeake

Known for educating generations of Eastern Shore healthcare providers, Chesapeake’s expanding health programs include careers in administration, sports management and emergency medical. From Shore Regional Health to dental, veterinary and specialty practices, there are countless opportunities to pursue your health career at Chesapeake.

The Health Profession programs are headquartered in our state-of-the-art facility housing an ambulance simulator, digital radiology suite, surgical suite, hospital room and an apartment for simulating emergency response scenarios. Human patient simulators accurately mimic any disease, illness or traumatic injury and are physiologically correct so they “respond” appropriately to the medical treatment administered.
