Campus Facilities

IUHW School of Medicine will have two buildings with a total floor space of 47,107m2: The WB Building (6 stories, 13,040m2) and the WA Building (11 stories, 34,067m2). In addition to four separate tiered lecture rooms each with a capacity of 162, approximately 50 classrooms for teaching small groups, two computer labs that each have a capacity of 80, and a multimedia room (practical microscope training room) with virtual slide capabilities, the campus will also feature a library with a reading room with a capacity of 90 as well as a self-study room with a capacity of 156. The campus will also feature the following facilities and equipment.

Medical Simulation Center (rendering)
Simulation Center for Outstanding Professional Education

The center will be equipped with computer-controlled simulation and network-based filming/recording/playback systems. Use of the following kinds of learning models will be possible.

  • Instructors will be able to provide directions to students regarding how to respond to simulated emergency patients in accordance with various predetermined situations.
  • Students will be able to examine simulated patients to ascertain relevant information, determine what the issues are, and provide treatment accordingly.
  • Instructors will be able to adjust the conditions of the simulated patients in response to the types of treatment students provide and then issue further directions.
  • When a student's diagnoses, judgments, and treatment decisions are appropriate the instructor will be able to improve the simulated patients' conditions, or worsen them if the student's response is inappropriate.

Using video cameras and data from the sensors in the computer-controlled simulated patients, the actions of students and the treatments they provide can be recorded chronologically from the start of their examination of the simulated patients until a certain degree of change can be seen in their condition. With this system, students will be able to review this recorded information to learn more about appropriate responses to emergency patients, in addition to what they learn from the advice provided by their instructors.
