The 95,000-square-foot building serves as an anchor for the eastern edge of campus within the newly defined School of Medicine Precinct, which connects existing and future buildings into a unified immersive environment. The building features traditional and emerging learning environments, offices, study spaces, and social areas for students, faculty, and staff.
At the core of the design and construction efforts was the desire to support, promote, and advance the underserved and minority populations both on and off campus. The design-build team created a building that demystifies the requirements for medical school application, supports those matriculating through the program, and acts as a resource for engagement with the local community to provide health care options to Riverside County.
“The new building provides modern and thoughtfully designed learning and study spaces that will not only serve our students but the entire community," said Deborah Deas, MD, MPH, Vice Chancellor for Health Sciences, Mark and Pam Rubin Dean of the UC Riverside School of Medicine. "It provides room for future expansion, helping to fulfill our mission of training a diverse workforce of physicians to serve the health care needs of inland Southern California.”
