Located amid rolling hills and sweeping views, the campus includes a Clinical Assessment and Simulation Center, a state-of-the-art gross anatomy lab, a clinical skills lab (in which students learn osteopathic manipulation, as well as ultrasound techniques), two  auditoriums, several seminar rooms, and a large library with study rooms.
