The University of Nevada, Las Vegas broke ground on the Medical Education Building in late October of 2020. Designed by TSK and CO Architects, the five-story, 135,000-gsf facility will be the first permanent structure for the School of Medicine. Funded by $155 million in philanthropic contributions, the project is being developed by Nevada Health and Bioscience Corporation through a public-private partnership. Offering instructional venues for a class size of 120 students, the flexible structure is designed to easily adapt to a class size of 180 students to accommodate future growth. The technology-rich facility will include problem-based learning spaces, simulation suites, anatomy and physiology labs, administrative offices, a forum, a café, and a student lounge. Occupancy is expected in fall of 2022.
