Interprofessional Health Sciences campus
The new School of Medicine is located on our Interprofessional Health Sciences (IHS) campus. It is also the home of Seton Hall’s highly acclaimed College of Nursing and the School of Health and Medical Sciences, which offers programs such as Athletic Training, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Physician Assistant, Speech-Language Pathology, and more. This interprofessional learning environment creates an innovative, team-based approach, which greatly advantages the ability for all our students to work collaboratively, improve patient care, and better prepare to enter a health care profession. The IHS campus is located on the border of Clifton and Nutley, New Jersey, only 20 minutes from Seton Hall’s South Orange campus.

“Beginning my freshman year, I started working with my Pre-med advisor; she really helped me and even paired me with a Seton Hall alumni mentor, an orthopedic oncological surgeon at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City. I got to observe him during 30 surgeries and assist him with several research projects. This, combined with my on-campus research with Dr. Muldow on stress hormones—as well as my two summer research positions at Columbia University Medical Center working on diabetes research—truly taught me to apply what I was studying in the classroom and helped me get into medical school.”
