Programmatic functions are expected to include flexible classrooms, conference and meeting rooms, auditoriums, faculty and student services offices, study rooms and study spaces, and a public pharmacy, all in a 250,000-square-foot building. Teaching laboratory space will consist of simulation, computer, surgical, cadaver, supportive, and active training.
In addition, the Medical Education Building will provide outpatient and specialty clinical services with exam rooms, specimen collection/processing, and imaging facilities. Supporting spaces will include food services, dining, locker rooms and gowning, breakrooms, lobbies, and reception areas.
The university will issue a separate solicitation for a construction manager at risk to oversee this project. Work is scheduled to start in November 2022 and conclude in October 2024.
