The new 57,000-square-foot, three-story building currently under construction will showcase the latest facilities necessary for growth and expansion of collaborative clinical and professional education. Home to USciences' Department of Physician Assistant Studies, the STC II will permit students from several disciplines, including pharmacy, physical therapy, and occupational therapy, to study, train, and interact together in a teaching and clinical environment.
In addition to simulation and clinical practice labs, patient exam rooms, lecture and classroom space, and a student lounge, the sleek, modern building will incorporate a green-roof system for sustainability. The 20,000 square-foot green roof will absorb nearly 15,000 gallons of water when fully saturated. It is anticipated the green roof, along with the triple glazed windows and natural lighting, will earn the STC II three Green Globes from the green Building Initiative.
