Classrooms get real
At Gannon, we emphasize a healthy blend of classroom instruction and real-world experience. Students can study Freshwater & Marine Biology in the Bahamas or Occupational Therapy in Ecuador. Others participate in our student-run pro bono pediatric occupational therapy or adult physical therapy clinics and conduct research alongside faculty in the lab, field, or clinical environment. 

The Human Performance Laboratory is a unique resource for Biomedical Engineering, Human Performance, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, and Sport & Exercise Science students to explore motion analysis using advanced technology. You can also study in the 5,800-sq. ft. Patient Simulation Center—the largest in the region. Other students pursue aquatic research opportunities on Lake Erie aboard the 48-foot vessel Environaut.

An Inside Look

What students are saying about us...

  • “The academics at Gannon prepared me very well for my future career. Beginning in August, I’ll be attending Campbell University’s School of Osteopathic Medicine. I was able to achieve that due to Gannon University’s academic rigor. I gained valuable experience at Gannon through research and being a lab assistant. These experiences opened doors for me to have internships and fellowships at Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh. Overall, Gannon has helped me become a very well-rounded individual, and I’ll be able to use what I’ve learned at Gannon throughout my career as a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine.”
