  • Facilities Designed to Help You Learn
    HAG - Medical Lab 2
    Hagerstown, Maryland Campus Medical Lab

    Our campuses all have specially built classrooms, computer labs, student lounge facilities, and administrative offices. Our facilities are partially accessible to persons with physical impairments. Most of our campuses are centrally located near major highways, restaurants, shopping, and bus routes, and offer free parking.

    Equipped for Success
    General equipment for all programs includes computers, Internet connections, overhead projectors, and a variety of computer software and electronic sources. For specific courses, most campuses offer medical labs containing equipment used in the health care field.

    Additional Resources
    We also offer onsite Financial Aid, Student Accounts, and Admissions departments in addition to online services such as library resources and tutoring. In addition, you can take advantage of our Academic Success Center for tutoring and assistance provided by Kaplan University staff. Student lounges provide computers, televisions, study tables, vending machines, fridges, and microwaves. On average, each of our computer labs has 24 computer stations.

    Program-Specific Labs
    Many of our campuses offer labs with program-specific equipment, giving students the opportunity to gain hands-on skills in a simulated, real-world environment.

    Each location has different onsite skills labs depending on the programs of study offered. Most of our locations offer medical assisting, criminal justice, and nursing skills labs:

    • The medical assistant labs at Kaplan University help you develop the skills relevant to the medical assisting field. Most labs contain patient beds that mimic a doctor's office setting, an autoclave for proper sterilization of equipment, a centrifuge to work with fluid samples, a reception area, prosthetic arms to learn blood draws, and drawers and cupboards full of instruments and equipment used to teach students how to set up and complete various procedures and tests. There is also a child and infant "dummy" for practice exercises.
    • The nursing skills labs include hospital beds, wall consoles with mock oxygen adapters, ambulatory devices, a scale, and mannequins (both low- and mid-fidelity). Approximately 8 to 10 students can work in each lab at once. The lab gives students hands-on training prior to moving on to clinical settings.
    • The criminal justice labs have a Fire Arms Training Simulator. This machine provides students with realistic training scenarios that aid in developing critical thinking skills, eyewitness identification, and on-demand verbal commands. Only one student is allowed in the simulation room at a time with the instructor. The scenarios can escalate or de-escalate based on the student's performance.

In addition, members can assist with security at community events.
