With a vision focused on the student experience, attracting and retaining top students and faculty, creating a visible research presence, and supporting the goal of being the top primary care medical school, the renovations to three existing buildings consist of new classrooms, laboratories, and faculty and administrative offices. An existing building will be adaptively reused to house an anatomy cadaver lab and supporting functions. Through shared academic spaces, the campus also houses a Physician’s Assistant Program.

Envisioned to aid in fulfilling the projected shortage in primary care physicians, the spaces are designed to encourage excitement around primary care as a profession, supporting the concept of the patient centered medical home, providing early clinical contact, human interaction, and mentoring while providing a comfortable and inviting atmosphere for learning.

Aligned with University goals for sustainability, the project is pursuing LEED Silver certification.
