Building Technology

The home of the USC School of Medicine Greenville is the Health Sciences Education Building on the campus of Greenville Memorial Hospital. This state-of-the-art building was purposefully designed and constructed with the latest technology to create a dynamic, interactive, wireless learning environment for medical, nursing and pharmacy students. All medical students are allowed to bring a computer device of their choice and are issued an iPad, easily making the USC School of Medicine Greenville among the most wired medical schools in America!

There are many reasons for a technology-rich environment. First and foremost, the USC School of Medicine Greenville is committed to educating the physicians of the future. These physicians must be knowledgeable of and comfortable with using information technology in the daily practice of medicine. Because technology is integrated throughout our building and is integral part of labs, lectures and student work, our medical students become expert in its use and are ahead of the curve when applying for residency.

Technology also advances teaching and learning. All classrooms and lecture halls share connectivity and support two-way communications. Lectures given in one room are easily shared in another room or lab. Faculty and students can access textbooks or journals on-line during a lecture or lab, further enhancing the learning experience. For example, each station of the state-of-the-art anatomy lab has a flat screen where students can follow a faculty member’s lecture, share their work with fellow students or access online information.
