Medical Research and Education Building
In September 2006, Temple University School of Medicine broke ground on its new Medical Education and Research Building that is nothing short of transformational for its students, faculty and the surrounding community for generations to come. Outfitted with the latest technologies for learning and discovery, the building is designed for current and emerging trends in medical education, such as virtual learning, clinical simulations, smart classrooms, interdisciplinary collaborations and small group endeavors. At the same time, the building facilitates the addition of more faculty, emphasizing growth and investment in Temple’s research enterprise and enhancing both education and patient care.
More than just a collection of classrooms, labs and libraries, the contemporary, iconic structure is a beacon on North Broad Street, a symbol of the dedication of the people working and studying within. It promises to be a source of pride for the University community and for Philadelphia. The scale of the project boldly declares Temple's commitment to medical education and service to the community, setting the stage for remarkable growth and distinction.
The facility is purpose-specific, yet open and flexible to invite collaboration between disciplines and among faculty and students as medicine and curricula evolve. It is a living, working symbol of our commitment to a brilliant future - for our students and faculty, for our patients and community, and for medicine.
The 11-story medical school building occupies one city block immediately north of Kresge Hall and across the street from Temple University Hospital. A third floor bridge connects the new building to Kresge Hall, and through Kresge to the School's other two buildings.
The new building’s eleven stories yields 480, 000 gross square feet, or 301, 052 net square feet of teaching, learning and combined-use space. Educational functions occupy 100, 010 square feet, of which 50, 000 square feet are reserved for the library. Research space measures 157, 920 square feet, and the remaining 43, 122 square feet are for public areas and administrative purposes.
The bold exterior of glass and brick is both contemporary and warm. The main Broad Street entrance is flanked on three sides by gleaming glass facades, revealing a three story library on the left and a soaring atrium on the right, with eight stories of research facilities behind it.
