New training space to open for fall classes

April 23, 2010

The UNT Health Science Center’s new Medical Education and Training Building was featured in today’s Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

The Health Science Center’s new Medical Education and Training building is scheduled to be substantially complete next month. Along with classrooms and clinical training space, the new building will include an 11,500-square-foot, 500-seat teaching auditorium.

The auditorium, which can be divided into two 250-seat rooms, will include four projection screens and four flat panel monitors that will make presentations easily visible from all parts of the room. Professors will be able to control presentations, audio, video and lighting. The auditorium also features video teleconferencing capabilities and a microphone system that will allow students to be heard in the large space. The auditorium will be available for high-profile lectures and community events.

Touted as a green project, it takes advantage of natural light and incorporates concrete and steel recycled from the demolished former hospital, the Osteopathic Medical Center of Texas.
