On Tuesday, March 29, 2016 the Group on Institutional Planning (GIP) sponsored a webinar on the downtown campus moves of the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at the University at Buffalo (UB) in Buffalo, NY and the University of South Florida (USF) Health Morsani College of Medicine in Tampa, FL.

UB and USF are in the midst of relocating their medical school campuses to more vibrant downtown locations. Their moves will improve the educational experience of their students, offer enhanced clinical care and research facilities and allow for stronger interprofessional collaborations.

Sited in downtown Tampa, USF Health Downtown will combine the new Morsani College of Medicine and USF Health Heart Institute and will be located within close proximity to the Center for Advanced Medical Learning and Simulation (CAMLS) and to their primary teaching and clinical affiliate, Tampa General Hospital (TGH) and surrounding clinical facilities.

For UB the new Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus, opening by 2017, will unite two campuses currently located 6 miles apart. In addition to joining UB with its teaching hospitals, the space will include an ambulatory care facility, a clinical translational research center, a children’s hospital, and two clinical research buildings. All will be linked via indoor bridges.
