The Harrell Medical Education Building is a new four story, 94,300 gross square feet building that will support the College of Medicine. The building will include innovative teaching laboratories and support facilities which respond to the latest trends toward small group learning and collaborative learning areas, the use of simulators and standardized patients for professional development and assessment, state of the art information technology, and access to information in a wireless environment.

The new facility will also house the H. James Free M.D. Center for Primary Care Education and Innovation creating a location for integration and program development for all primary care educational activities that occur in the College of Medicine. The simulation and clinical skills components will meet accreditation requirements for residency training programs and the other health science colleges.
