State-Of-The-Art On-Campus Resources

Centers for Innovative Clinical Practice

Students in our physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech-language pathology programs practice using state-of-the-art technology in our Centers for Innovative Clinical Practice. Located on all USAHS campuses, our CICPs are immersive learning laboratories that mimic a variety of clinical spaces and home settings.

ADL Simulation Lab

Watch health science students in our occupational therapy programs use assistive devices tailored to each scenario as they work with mock patients on daily living skills, such as getting in and out of a bathtub and brushing their teeth.

Driving Simulator

Our driving simulators are built with actual car parts, including a six-speed transmission and a force-feedback steering wheel. Video monitors play simulations, so the user feels like they’re really driving. Our OT students use this tool to assess patients’ reaction speeds and visual perception, and to help patients build or rebuild their driving skills.

3D Printers

Our 3D printers enable you to design and build customized assistive technology for patients. Using technology and your own inspiration, you can create orthotics, prosthetics, and other devices that could make a patient's sports life or daily life a little bit easier. As one of our occupational and physical therapy students, you can even work with patients to create individualized devices.
