May 6, 2010

Memorial University broke ground this week for a new building to expand the institution's faculty of medicine. The project includes a 6-story building adjacent to the Health Sciences Centre with 3 floors devoted to the expansion of genetics and genomics research. The first 2 floors will be dedicated to expanding the medical education program. Some of the key features of the new facility include an advanced patient simulation centre, standardized patient exam rooms, a 120-seat lecture theatre, and educational support units. Construction is slated to be complete in September 2012. MUN News
