HSLC Improvements Underway

Learning community

Walking through the atrium of the Health Sciences Learning Center, one can’t miss the construction work; exciting changes have begun.

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).

As the building undergoes the renovation project, which started in June, construction will at times affect students, faculty and staff, but the new enhancements will be exciting, said Mark Wells, assistant dean of facilities.

“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 remodelling 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.
