As healthcare delivery becomes increasingly interprofessional, a new building collocates three distinct programs to ease students' transition from academic to clinical environments. The facility is conceived as a vessel for human-focused technology in the highly competitive landscape of health education. Strategic adjacencies and shared resources enhance skills acquisition, collaborative research, and interprofessional understanding among disciplines. Simulation spaces and computer labs increase opportunities for students to refine skills and advanced techniques before entering the clinical environment.

High-quality finishes, a comfortable and  attractive student commons area, and the convenience of "one-stop" student services contribute to a world-class experience for tomorrow's leaders in healthcare. Expansive glazing and sweeping views of  Manhattan maximize the sense of space in the constrained urban footprint.

Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates, PC was the collaborating architect on this project.
