Pioneering principles for next-generation healthcare facility design are converging with revolutionary developments in curricular and facility plans in medical and health science education -- make certain your plans are in synch with the design details delivered in this session. Scott Kelsey and Jon Kanda detail the convergence of medical education and clinical care environments that presents real opportunities to support transformation in healthcare delivery. They scope out what those integrated learning environments look like, deliver benchmarks and space metrics, and examine trends in collaborative learning, skills and simulation training facilities, activity-based administrative spaces, and social learning spaces.
