Keeping in line with the University’s mission and strategic plan, these renovations are intended to provide Salus students with an optimum learning experience in a progressive atmosphere as technology rapidly changes. New, expanded, and renovated facilities are a central priority of the University, as we strive to transform into a technology-rich academic hub for professional development, multidisciplinary study, and a collaborative community resource.

Clinical Skills Lab Renovation

Summary & Details

The new, updated Clinical Skills Lab will feature state-of-the-art ophthalmic equipment and electronic health record capabilities in order to prepare the University’s optometry students for patient care at The Eye Institute. Other prominent upgrades include 34 fully equipped optometric bays, video/camera slit lamps for demonstration, and mounted live feed video cameras for integrated instruction. Renovation of the new space will commence in January 2017 with an ambitious completion date before the start of the 2017-2018 academic year.

The Oak Lane Clinic will be the fourth addition to Ampersand’s Philadelphia-based CityLife Neighborhood Clinic model, which focuses on providing well-rounded, quality care to neighborhoods that traditionally lack access to coordinated care. The clinic will be accessible from the second-floor entrance of TEI.
