UCSD Launches $70 Million Medical Training Center
“The UC San Diego School of Medicine has opened a $70 million state-of-the-art medical training center — the first since the medical school opened in 1968 — fulfilling a longstanding desire by UCSD to bring all of its training programs under one roof.
The 100,000-square-foot Medical Education and Telemedicine Center, which opened as classes started last week, combines and expands programs now scattered around the La Jolla campus and at the UCSD Medical Center in Hillcrest.
The three-story center includes authentic mock-ups of emergency rooms, intensive care units, surgeries and treatment rooms where students, medical faculty and visiting physicians can hone skills using $30 million worth of advanced medical equipment including the latest in laparascopic and robotic surgery.”
