Last spring, VCU cut the ribbon on its latest academic facility, and classes are being held there for the first time this fall. At 154,000 square feet and eight stories, the new College of Health Professions Building on the MCV Campus is large enough to house all 11 of the college’s units for the first time under one roof. This will allow students and faculty to collaborate in ways that have not been previously possible, which is ideal for the health professions — working together leads to the best possible outcomes for patients.
The building, which meets LEED Silver certification standards, is equipped with learning laboratories designed for patient simulation and diagnostic technology, including a “smart apartment” that trains students on how to assist people of limited mobility with daily living activities. Flexible classrooms were designed for student engagement and distance-learning opportunities.
