Virginia Commonwealth University celebrated the opening of its EYP-designed College of Health Professions Building, a dramatic delivery in its promise to empower students and researchers by unifying talent, nationally ranked programs, and technology under one roof.
Located in the heart of the renowned Texas Medical Center, the newly opened Michael E. DeBakey High School for Health Professions provides its students with a medical education unlike any other. The first health-focused high school in the United States, the new 194,000-sf facility includes mock hospital rooms, science and research labs, and teaching spaces for dentistry, rehabilitation, and other medical practices. Close proximity to some of the country’s best doctors and medical centers and regular hospital rotations as part of the school’s curriculum allows its students to engage in on-site, hands-on learning, dramatically expanding educational opportunities.
New treatments and technologies, managed care, and an aging population are transforming the healthcare profession. EYP has played a leading role in bringing health education facilities into the 21st century to help prepare students for the challenges of a rapidly evolving profession.
