Health Sciences Learning Center improvements are underway

In an effort to support its new ForWard curriculum and prepare for the upcoming medical school accreditation, the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health will be making improvements to roughly 356,000 square feet at the Health Sciences Learning Center (HSLC).

“It is hard to believe that it has been more than a decade since we moved to the HSLC. But, it has. And the truth of the matter is our building needs to look forward beyond the 21st century,” Wells said.

The improvements are divided into two projects. The first phase includes remodeling classroom and teaching space. This phase of the project will be completed by the time the Liaison Committee on Medical Education accreditation reviewers arrive for their site visit in April 2018. Learn more.

This effort compliments the university’s broader plans as it looks to enhance its learning spaces and course scheduling practices to create neighborhoods of shared active learning spaces across campus, and to better support active teaching approaches. See the Learning Space Improvement Report.
