Trent Semans Center for Health Education, Duke University School of Medicine

The School of Medicine marks the intersection of medical education and practice and the future of medical pedagogy and science. The state-of-the-art teaching facility embraces new technology and transforms the way students and faculty interact with simulation classrooms and flexible, team-based learning environments.

 

Large program spaces form the building’s core, while small group, office and meeting spaces occupy the front façade, garnering natural light and views of Duke’s Esplanade and campus. A monumental staircase connects building levels within a glass-enclosed atrium that echoes traditional campus forms yet allows easy and open circulation between the building’s most used spaces. Flexibility and open social spaces, such as the atrium and a generous rooftop terrace, foster collaboration and connection between students at all program levels, faculty and staff. As the first new campus facility fully dedicated to medical education built since 1930, the architecture redefines the school’s identity with a vibrant image appropriate to the paradigm-shifting program.
