Degrees Offered


The College of Health Professions represents a diverse mix of students that study at Anderson University’s Main Campus in Anderson, our Bearwood Campus in Anderson, the University Center of Greenville, and online.

As part of AU’s main campus location, the Center for Medical Simulations is designed to provide a realistic clinical experience for students in nursing, human performance, and physical therapy.

From the minute you step inside the center, a simulated hospital, you’ll get a feeling you’re walking onto a hall at a modern hospital. AU has equipped the center with more than a dozen human simulators. This cutting-edge technology looks like human-scale replicas of patients, from newborns to adults, and can simulate a variety of conditions. Interactive in every way, the simulators allow students to ask questions – and get responses.

Once students have completed a simulation, they can move to the center’s cadaver lab, where instructors will show the real-life physical traits corresponding to the condition the students were just working on. On many college campuses, cadaver labs are available only to medical school students. This resource is an example of AU’s commitment to providing the most authentic experience possible for students in the College of Health Professions.
