The Claude Moore Medical Education Building project
consolidated medical education programs currently
scattered across Grounds in outdated facilities and
created a central entrance to the School of Medicine,
the only school at UVA without a dedicated teaching
The new five story structure is located
at the corner of Lane Road and 15th Street and is
connected to Medical Research Building Five, facilitating
access to the School of Medicine facilities in Jordan Hall and the
Health Sciences Library.
The new facility is a 58,000 gsf steel framed
structure with glass and brick exterior. The
basement level contains a Clinical Skills Center
that teaches students
examination and diagnostic skills. The ground level
is a high-tech Medical Simulation Training
Center which allows teaching complex procedures
and honing vital skills in a safe, virtual
environment that may be used by students, residents,
and emergency medical technicians.
A 162 person Learning Studio is located on the first floor near
the main entrance to the facility on 15th Street.
This round space is a predominate feature of the
facility and provides a Technology-Enabled
Active Learning (TEAL) environment which
facilitates image based or data based problem solving
in small groups. The second floor has a
student lounge and administrative offices. A 171
person lecture hall as well as additional
administrative space is on the third level.
