Hands-on health science
The Arnold S. Goldstein Simulation Laboratories Suite in the Bouvé College of Health Sciences features a host of video capture technologies, four simulation bays, two debriefing rooms, and nine high fidelity patient simulators. It will facilitate healthcare instruction, utilizing computer-driven mannequins and lifelike models, and will allow faculty and students to replicate clinical symptoms and modulate realistic human responses. The suite will enable a collaborative learning environment for students across health professions.
Considering a PhD in health technology?
Northeastern University’s Personal Health Informatics Doctoral Program is hosting an information and demo session for prospective students:
Thursday November 7
4:30 PM – 6:00 PM (Drop in and leave anytime)
Room 348, Curry Student Center, Northeastern University
Northeastern University’s interdisciplinary Doctoral Program in Personal Health Informatics prepares researchers to invent and evaluate person- and patient-facing technologies that improve health and wellness and transform the healthcare system. The joint degree program combines a strong curriculum in human-computer interface technology and experimental design in health sciences. Come see project demonstrations and talk with students and faculty in the program to learn more about pursuing research in this new field.

To be sent additional information (including information about parking), please register by visiting this website: http://www.northeastern.edu/graduate/open_house/. Under “College/School” select “Bouve College of Health Sciences” and then under “Bouve College of Health Sciences Programs” select “Personal Health Informatics (PhD)”.
The Curry Student Center is located just a 2 minute walk from both the Ruggles MBTA Orange Line and Commuter Rail stop, as well as from the Northeastern MBTA Green Line (E) stop. For those driving, metered street parking is available nearby but it can be challenging to find open spots. If you register, you will receive information via email about complimentary parking. An alternative (but somewhat expensive) parking option is to pay for parking at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts Parking Garage.
