Last Thursday marked the official opening of the new home of BC's Southern Medical Program, which will see physicians completing their medical training for the first time in the Okanagan. Constructed with a $32.7-million investment by the provincial government, the Reichwald Health Sciences Centre at UBC's Okanagan campus accommodates 32 first-year medical students, bringing the number of first-year medical students in BC to 288. The 4,266-square-metre centre features high-tech classrooms and lecture theatres networked with the other 3 medical program locations in Vancouver, Victoria, and Prince George. The centre also includes small-group teaching rooms, teaching and research labs, administration and faculty offices, and a human kinetics lab. BC News Release
