As the first building on the new UNLV Health Sciences Campus, the Medical Education Building is the flagship facility for the newly founded School of Medicine and anchor for the future home of the Allied School of Health Sciences. The program includes a triple-height forum gathering space for both special events and daily activities. Perched above the forum and its adjacent learning studios, classrooms, lounges and study rooms is a progressive and robust clinical skills and simulation center. The design creates an iconic campus environment that serves as a beacon to the community and a sustainable model for building in an urban desert environment.
