In August 2018, The Lincy Institute1 retained Tripp Umbach2 to provide consultation to evaluate and identify best practices for medical school facilities and development models as the University of Nevada Las Vegas (UNLV) and the community embarks on the development of a home for the UNLV School of Medicine. To complete this assignment, Tripp Umbach completed a comprehensive process involving secondary data analysis and actively sought and received input from stakeholders including leadership at The Lincy Institute, UNLV School of Medicine, previous Tripp Umbach clients, leading design professionals with experience developing medical schools, and potential donors to the proposed project.
This report allows the UNLV School of Medicine, donors, representatives from the Nevada System of Higher Education, and the state of Nevada to understand innovations in medical education facility design and development to guide their decisionmaking on future medical education facility investments. The report begins by reviewing UNLV’s current proposal to build a medical school. We then compare the proposal to recent medical school construction projects at other universities. The report concludes with a series of recommendations for UNLV to construct its new medical school building.
