265 Main Street, Albemarle, NC 28001
Pfeiffer University recently added a Masters of Occupational Therapy and a Masters of Physician Assistant Studies to their graduate programs. With their program expansion, they needed a building that would support the specifics of those programs and potential class size growth. This 4-story building contains classroom space, professor offices, a replica apartment with a kitchen and bathroom for students to practice in-home care, a cadaver lab, and labs simulating an emergency room and doctor's office exam rooms. The location of the building in downtown Albemarle, benefits the community by students looking for housing, increased business in local restaurants and shops, new job opportunities as the programs grow, and the production of healthcare professionals that are geared toward serving rural areas.
