University of Central Florida College of Medicine
An anchor of Orlando’s Medical City, the University of Central Florida’s College of Medicine campus sits at a prominent location across 50 acres in the Lake Nona development. The new facility houses all of the university’s medical school services, including the medical library, lecture halls, classrooms, teaching laboratories, state-of-the-art simulation learning laboratories and a clinical skills center rivaling those of other major medical schools throughout the country.
UCF’s teaching laboratories focus on biological sciences, including biochemistry, molecular biology, genetics and cell biology. The complex features a Clinical Skills Center and Simulation Learning Resource Center, both of which offer students hands-on learning experience in realistic medical environments.
As structural engineer, Walter P Moore created efficient structural systems for the main building and for several ancillary elements, including a four-story curved north façade wall at the north entry and a clock tower in the north entry plaza.
