Facilities

  • Student sits in lab with models of brain, heart and human skeleton
    Anatomy and Physiology Lab

    DaVinci had it right. Biomedical sciences and medical illustration students must observe the human body inside and out to understand the sum of its parts. RIT students learn from dissecting cadavers in the Anatomy and Physiology lab in RIT’s Center for Bioscience Education and Technology.

  • A group of people with laptops reviewing a video on a projector
    Behavioral Health Dry Lab

    Within this space, clinical psychology interns and undergraduate students work with computer systems to create interactive therapeutic models.

  • Open lab with large desks and a projector
    Biomedical Sciences Lab

    The Biomedical Sciences Laboratory is fully equipped with ventilated hoods, centrifuges, and benchtop equipment to support experiments in molecular biology and microbiology.

  • Cadaver lab with 6 tables
    Cadaver Lab

    Human gross anatomy is taught in the fall (for medical illustration majors) and in the spring (for physician assistant and biomedical sciences majors) with the use of cadaver specimens acquired from the University of Rochester's School of Medicine.  

  • Students wearing lab coats, looking into microscopes.
    Center for Bioscience Education and Technology (CBET)

    The Center for Bioscience Education and Technology (CBET) is the Northeast region's hub for medical-related academic programs, workshops, and summer sessions for K-12 teachers and students, and customized workforce training and professional-development services for the biosciences industry.<

  • a hospital room with 3 patients all using ultrasound scanners with TVs on the wall showing the scan imagery
    Echocardiography Lab

    Arranged as a central classroom with mock imaging stations around the perimeter, the Echocardiography Lab provides opportunities for both lecture and skill training for students to learn how to image the heart. 

  • Classroom lab with six work tables
    Health and Life Sciences Lab

    Courses taught in the Health and Life Sciences Lab are managed by the College of Health Sciences and Technology and the College of Science and offered for students in majoring in biomedical sciences, biology, and biotechnology and molecular bioscience.

  • Three students and a faculty member working on laptops around a table
    NEEDs Lab

    The mission of the Nutrition Education, Engineering, and Designs (NEEDs) lab is to engineer and design research and evaluation services that foster promotion and delivery of evidence-based health and nutrition education.

  • Patients sitting on medical tables in a mock exam room receiving examinations
    Physician Assistant Lab

    Arranged as a central classroom with mock examination stations positioned around the perimeter, the Physician Assistant Lab provides opportunities for lecture and break-out stations that support clinical skill training for physician assistant majors.

  • A research lab with measuring equipment on a benchtop
    Research Lab

    This research lab supports research conducted by students and faculty in biomedical sciences, specifically in the areas of clinical microbiology, immunology, and parasitology. 

  • 3 students using a stethoscope on a dummy patient and a monitor with data readouts
    Simulation Lab

    The Simulation Laboratory consists of three parts a patient room that contains a simulation mannequin, a control room where operation of the mannequin occurs, and a debriefing room where faculty interact with students after simulated medical scenarios end.

  • Student engaged in virtual reality boxing
    The Fitness Lab

    The Fitness Lab houses state-of-the-art equipment utilized by exercise science students to gain hands-on experience conducting fitness assessments and testing. Fitness services, such as fitness assessments, are also provided by exercise science students to the RIT community.

     

  • A group of people performing a sonogram on a patient
    Ultrasound Scanning Suite

    To remain a leader in educating technically sound sonographers, the diagnostic medical sonography program emphasizes not only on the didactic aspect of learning, but also the practical, hands-on, clinical aspect.
