Loyola Clinical Centers:
Expanding knowledge while extending care
Established in 2003 by Loyola University Maryland, the Loyola Clinical Centers (LCC) provides a range of integrated, affordable services—from audiology and literacy education to speech-language pathology, psychology, and pastoral counseling—to all members of the greater Baltimore community, regardless of their age or ability to pay. The LCC also serves as a valuable clinical training environment for Loyola master’s and doctoral students in these disciplines as well as a hub of interdisciplinary scholarly research by LCC administrators, faculty, and students.
LCC services are provided at a cost that is accessible to clients with financial difficulties.
The Director’s Discretionary Fund, supported by the campaign, will provide faculty and students with a broad range of support, from research materials to clinical equipment.
The Center for Prevention and Rehabilitation of Brain Injury will firmly establish the LCC as a national leader in brain injury and disorders assessment, prevention, and rehabilitation.
A whole-person approach to education—and service
The LCC takes a whole-person approach to care, serving clients who often require highly integrated assessment and treatment to manage their health. Adults with brain injuries and disorders exemplify the need for this kind of care, which is why the LCC recently launched an interdisciplinary brain injury and disorder prevention and rehabilitation program. As with all LCC offerings, the program provides services at a cost that is accessible to clients with financial difficulties.
The Bright Minds, Bold Hearts campaign will strengthen the LCC’s ability to serve clients with brain injuries and brain disorders and further enhance its overall commitment to interdisciplinary research, service, and education. Master’s and doctoral students who complete clinical internships at the LCC will gain unique experience working collaboratively across specialties and emerge with skills and knowledge that distinguish them in the professional world and prepare them to lead the health care industry’s shift to greater continuity of care.
