George T. Harrell Medical Education Building

College of Medicine at the University of Florida

95,000 Square feet of learning space that includes a state-of-the-art experiential learning theater, small-group and individual study rooms and open spaces for gathering.

2 Circular learning studios that can each accommodate up to 160 students, designed with collaborative, team-based learning in mind.

18 Standardized patient examination rooms within the expanded clinical skills learning and assessment center equipped with video cameras and microphones.

The George T. Harrell, M.D., Medical Education Building, which opened its doors July 29, 2015, serves as a home for medical and physician assistant students at UF. As the UF College of Medicine adapted its curriculum to the way a new generation of students learn, it was imperative that we build a new facility strategically designed to support this shift in teaching and learning.

The Harrell Medical Education Building serves as a national model, providing a dynamic environment for training UF medical students and physician assistant students to practice safe, effective and compassionate clinical care. The facility, named for the UF College of Medicine’s founding dean, Dr. George T. Harrell, embodies the traditions of our past while responding to the needs of our changing world.
