We are developing a £16 million Three Counties Centre for Health 而且 Wellbeing, 作为医学院的新家. 该项目按计划将于2023年完工.
Designed to maximise opportunities for interprofessional learning, the Three Counties Centre for Health 而且 Wellbeing will be a physical embodiment of the aims of the 三县医学院 (TCMS) 而且 its programme.
Centrally situated on the Severn’s St John’s riverbank in Worcester, it will be a major new resource for skills across the health professions. Until then existing University teaching space is available.
The new facility will include a specialised anatomy skills room using high fidelity models for visualisation of anatomy, pathology 而且 physiology; a simulated GP’s surgery with a suite of consultation rooms; technology for viewing 而且 feedback space; 而且 easily dividable units for Objective Structured Clinical Examinations.
The use of state-of-the-art simulation 而且 visualisation facilities means there will be no need for laboratories for cadaveric dissection 而且 st而且ard wet laboratories to support basic science courses. 而不是, space will be available to provide students access to computers 而且 to allow them to engage in small study groups. A large open-plan learning space with café facilities will act as a communal area for students from different health disciplines to meet 而且 collaborate in an informal environment. The new building will also provide a significant expansion of continuing professional development opportunities for those who are currently working in the regional health service.
The Centre for Health 而且 Wellbeing will significantly enhance the University’s existing health 而且 science facilities. 这些现有设施包括:
- Extensive clinical simulation suites 而且 a simulated hospital environment
- Dedicated biomedical research laboratories containing specialist equipment such as an LC/MS for lipid analysis
- A Flow Cytometer for immunophenotyping 而且 qPCR machines for gene expression analysis
- Advanced laboratories for pollen 而且 aerobiology research, with a negative pressure room for secure h而且ling of harmful microorganisms 而且 an environmental chamber for testing equipment 而且 people in different environmental settings.
The Medical School’s students will also have access to the University’s other 一流的设施, 比如蜂巢, Europe’s first fully integrated university 而且 public library based in a multi-award winning iconic building providing access to a quarter of a million books 而且 over 12 miles of archive collections.
Known for its imaginative innovation as well as its generosity, 克莱夫和西尔维娅·理查兹慈善基金会 主要的捐赠 of a quarter of a million pounds towards the creation of the new anatomy suite at the 三县医学院.
