A new medical education building for the UC Irvine School of Medicine will help prepare tomorrow’s doctors for healthcare in the digital age. At a Dec. 7 groundbreaking ceremony, Chancellor Michael V. Drake and Dr. David Bailey, vice chancellor of health affairs, unveiled the $40.5 million, 65,000-square-foot building, which will be the hub of all educational activities for the more than 400 UCI medical students, and home to the innovative Program in Medical Education for the Latino Community. The building will include a state-of-the-art telemedicine training center. “This medical education building will play an important part in supporting new initiatives and technologies in teaching and healthcare delivery that will establish UC Irvine as a national leader in medical education,” Bailey said.
