Seton Hall’s new Interprofessional Health Sciences (IHS) campus will open in the summer of 2018. The campus is situated in the towns of Clifton and Nutley, N.J. on the former site of Roche Pharmaceuticals. It is approximately 10 miles from Seton Hall’s main campus in South Orange, N.J. and is convenient to New York City and major transportation hubs.
The campus features world-class facilities for health science research and discovery and will house Seton Hall’s College of Nursing and School of Health and Medical Sciences as well as the new Seton Hall–Hackensack Meridian School of Medicine.
The IHS campus creates a forward-thinking approach to healthcare education, bringing together future doctors, nurses and health professionals in the fields of medicine, nursing, physical therapy, physician assistant, occupational therapy, athletic training and speech language pathology. This innovative team-based training reflects the future of healthcare delivery; Seton Hall is one of the first universities in the world to blaze this trail. This new approach will vastly improve cooperation and communication among health professionals and greatly strengthen patient care.
Seton Hall’s partnership with Hackensack Meridian Health’s extensive hospital network offers premiere access to clinical teaching sites for students in all of our healthcare programs.
The Seton Hall and Hackensack Meridian Health partnership is the only private school of medicine in the state of New Jersey and is one of only five schools of medicine affiliated with a Catholic university in the nation. The School of Medicine plans to open in the summer of 2018 pending preliminary accreditation from the Liaison Commission on Medical Education.
