The faculty is situated on the Miletrie site, close to :

It has 5 amphitheaters (one of 850 places), a library of 200 study spaces, a cefeteria, a videoconferencing room, and a 340 parking spaces.
The faculty has a major role in Health Sciences research but also has the mission to train general practioners and specialists, pharmacists, midwives, speech therapists useful for health needs of the Poitou - Charentes area.
