Tandy Education Center
University of Oklahoma - Tulsa
The OU-TU School of Community Medicine is a partnership between the University of Oklahoma and University of Tulsa created to help address Oklahoma’s low health status, low health systems performance and physician shortage. Curriculum is designed and supported by the University of Tulsa’s established core of science education and research programs and the University of Oklahoma’s medical training program in Tulsa. The OU-TU School of Community Medicine expanded from a clinical two-year campus for third- and fourth-year students to offering all four years of the Doctor of Medicine program.
Wallace Engineering provided structural and civil engineering services for this new 16,000 square foot education center. The two-story facility features 10 mock exam rooms, two inpatient intensive care unit/emergency rooms, four interview consultation rooms, one apartment model for in-home situations, two debriefing rooms and a multipurpose training room with a separate area for training standardized patients. The second floor contains collaboration spaces and a break area for students.
