The largest medical education facility under construction in the U.S. has begun to take shape in downtown Buffalo.
Steel erection at the site of the University at Buffalo's new School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences is underway for floors one through three. Construction for floors four through eight starts this summer.
The largest construction project in UB's 167-year history is set to conclude in 2017 and bring with it 2,000 faculty, students and staff to downtown Buffalo.
The new location puts superior medical education, clinical care and pioneering research in close proximity, anchoring Buffalo's evolving comprehensive academic health center in a vibrant downtown setting. These new facilities will better enable the school to advance health and wellness across the life span for the people of New York and the world through research, clinical care and the education of tomorrow's leaders in health care and biomedical sciences. The school's faculty and residents provide care for the community's diverse populations through strong clinical partnerships and the school's practice plan, UBMD.
