Students in Lebanon Valley College’s health professions programs have a new, innovative learning space. The Jeanne and Edward H. Arnold Health Professions Pavilion is open for students in our master of athletic training, master of exercise science (three tracks: applied kinesiology, clinical exercise physiology, and sport performance), and doctor of physical therapy programs. There, they gain real-world experience learning and conducting research in spaces like our Lewis Human Performance Lab and Gross Anatomy Lab, facilities usually only found at major research universities or corporations.
The multi-million-dollar facility, the most ambitious academic project in the College’s history, provides flexible classroom space, observation rooms acoustically treated for sound, the Lewis Human Performance and Gross Anatomy labs, flexible faculty office space to increase collaboration with students, and new technologies that enhance teaching. Graduates of our health professions programs enjoy increased career opportunities as the sector is projected to add five million new U.S. jobs by 2022.
