The Radford University Doctor of Physical Therapy (SPT) program offers state-of-the-art facilities for student to learn and grow as healthcare professionals. The DPT program features Virginia Intercollegiate Anatomy Lab, a simulation center and access to Carilion Community Hospital.

The Virginia Intercollegiate Anatomy Laboratory

The Virginia Intercollegiate Anatomy Laboratory (VIAL) is a collaboration of Radford University and the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine, located at Radford University Carilion (RUC) in Roanoke. It is equipped with large-screen monitors, a portable, high resolution camera, image and video storage and iPads located permanently in the lab so that required images can be viewed at each station during dissection. Another prime feature of the VIAL is an Anatomage table, which is connected to large-screen monitors strategically located throughout the classroom. Students are able to connect their laptops or tablets to the monitors to form localized study groups within the classroom.

Simulation Center

The Clinical Simulation Centers provide a hands-on learning experience in an environment that is safe and realistic, producing quality nurses with enhanced critical thinking abilities, communication skills and collaboration experience.
