The University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health is undergoing renovations as it prepares for its medical school accreditation process.
As part of the renovations, the school is redoing approximately 356,000 square feet of the Health Sciences Learning Center to get ready for its ForWard way of teaching its medical programs, which will break away from the standard way of teaching in medical school, the university said in a release.
The renovations include redoing classrooms and rooms for professors, which the school expects to complete in April 2018 when the Liaison Committee on Medical Education accreditation staff is expected to visit the university.
The living areas for those in the medical program, which the university calls The Neighborhood, is also getting renovated and will have resources it didn't have before.
The university plans to have renovations of offices and meeting rooms for staff completed in May to August of next year.
A major highlight of the renovations includes a third-floor Active Learning Center.
