The Joint Health Sciences Center (JHSC) is located at the corner of Martin Luther King Boulevard and Broadway in Camden. The Center houses lab and training spaces for multiple universities and is the only facility in the state to house important functions of two four-year institutions, a county college and a medical school.
The $70 million, four-story JHSC was designed to co-locate faculty and students from different academic disciplines in order to facilitate collaboration and joint research. As a result, students from each institution have unprecedented access to faculty and peers from other institutions, expanding opportunities for mentorship and research, while also maximizing the efficiency of the space and the programs therein.
The Center houses research laboratory spaces for both Rowan University and Rutgers University-Camden, simulation rooms for medical students at Cooper Medical School of Rowan University, instructional space and additional simulation labs for Camden County College, and office space for the Joint Board.The collaborative design hopes to inspire students and faculty from each institution to work together on a common research agenda that will produce groundbreaking contributions and advances in the field of Biomedical science.
