Interprofessional Health Sciences Campus
The IHS campus creates a forward-thinking approach to healthcare education, bringing together future doctors, nurses and health professionals in the fields of medicine, nursing, physical therapy, physician assistant, occupational therapy, athletic training and speech language pathology. This innovative team-based training reflects the future of healthcare delivery; Seton Hall is one of only a few universities using this model. This new approach will vastly improve cooperation and communication among health professionals and greatly strengthen patient care.
The Interprofessional Health Sciences campus houses the School of Health and Medical Sciences as well as the Hackensack Meridian School of Medicine.
Seton Hall’s partnership with Hackensack Meridian Health’s extensive hospital network offers premiere access to clinical teaching sites for students in all of our healthcare programs.
The Seton Hall and Hackensack Meridian Health partnership was the only private school of medicine in the state of New Jersey and was one of only five schools of medicine affiliated with a Catholic university in the nation.
The School of Health and Medical Sciences combines the expertise of Seton Hall University with the resources of affiliate healthcare sites to provide exemplary academic and clinical training in graduate-level health sciences and health administration.
The School’s emphasis on interprofessional education prepares healthcare leaders of tomorrow to focus on patient-centered care and to make a difference in patients’ lives and their communities. All School of Health and Medical Sciences (SHMS) classes are held on the Interprofessional Health Sciences Campus. More Information about the School of Health and Medical Sciences »
