University Health Care Centers The Health Professions Division Health Care Centers serve an important function and are an integral part of the training programs. They provide a vital community function by bringing health care service to areas whose medical needs traditionally have gone unmet. The Division of Clinical Operations oversees the administration and oversight of the university’s health care centers in Miami- Dade and Broward counties. The centers offer health care services to the community, some not available elsewhere, and community outreach programs in the form of free health care education and assessment for vision, medical, speech, behavioral health, physical and occupational therapy, and dental services. Specific information about the clinics and services available to enrolled students are included on the Health Care Centers website at clinics.nova.edu .
