UC Davis Health System's Education Building and Medical Library

Collaborative Educational Environment

For years, first- and second-year UC Davis School of Medicine students took their core science classes on the Davis campus and spent their third and fourth years of study at the UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento. Opened December 11, 2006, the Education Building and F. William Blaisdell, M.D., Medical Library bring together students and faculty in a single location, facilitating the kinds of robust exchanges that lead to higher levels of learning.

The 122,000-square-foot Education Building and Medical Library is situated on a two-acre site on the medical center campus, between the Surgery and Emergency Services Pavilion, now under construction, and the Lawrence J. Ellison Ambulatory Care Center.

The facilities includes:

  • Laboratories that will provide scientists with a cutting-edge environment in which to conduct groundbreaking research.
  • Computer, clinical skills and training labs that will offer medical students a hands-on, innovative educational experience.
  • Classrooms, lecture halls and offices that will provide faculty with contemporary, adaptable spaces in which to implement a broader scale of teaching models, from small groups to case- and problem-based studies.
  • Café and lounge spaces that will allow faculty and students from all classes the opportunity to interact with each other.
