The Center for Medical Education Innovation at Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences provides a five-fold increase in simulation space on campus, supports a wide spectrum of competency- and skills-based training, and stands as a regional training destination in the greater Kansas City area. Designed to achieve LEED Silver certification, it places technology-rich, light-filled teaching labs in the heart of campus. The CMEI quadruples the existing clinical skills curriculum and includes 10 simulation rooms, debrief rooms, clinical skills exam rooms, multi-purpose part-task training rooms, classrooms, support rooms, and offices. The striking design intentionally addresses both the material palette and scale of the university’s architectural past, while setting a new and forward-thinking direction for the future.
