The Health Education Campus

The Health Education Campus was opened in 2019 by the Case Western University and the Cleveland Clinic to bring together nursing, medical, dental, and physician assistant students to learn new things from each other.
The campus features the four-story, 477,000-square-foot Sheila and Eric Samson Pavilion, a 132,000-square-foot dental clinic and Newton Avenue Park. The campus also has state-of-the-art technology, including a virtual-reality anatomy curriculum, medical simulation center, flight nursing simulation program, and touch-screen visualization tables for anatomy teaching.

  • What are the classrooms like?

    Classes at the Health Education Campus promote cross-disciplinary understanding. HEC uses the approach of inter professional education, which encourages health care students to learn with and from each other. Medical, nursing, dental and social work students take classes together, so they better understand each side, communicate faster and ensure more effective treatments.
  • Where is parking at the Health Education Center?

    The Health Education Campus (HEC) offers parking for faculty, staff, students and patients in areas designated by the Case Western Reserve University Parking Services.
