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Moore Medical Education Building project consolidated medical education programs currently scattered across Grounds in outdated facilities and created a central entrance to the School of Medicine, the only school at UVA without a dedicated teaching facility.

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.
