Located on the Health Sciences Campus, the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine building is a dedicated learning space designed for a patient-centered curriculum.
Harmoniously blending contemporary and traditional styles, the building has an undulating glass façade supported by Hokie stone, the traditional material used on the Virginia Tech campus in Blacksburg.
Natural light floods the building accentuating the tranquil color scheme. Organic elements utilized in the minimalist interior design dissolve the transition from indoors to outdoors, creating an environment highly conducive to learning and sharing.

The entrance to the building is across a tiled plaza that opens through a vestibule into the lobby reception area. Across the lobby is an opening to a patio and raised green roof. Immediately accessible from the lobby is a café and lecture hall.
The main entrance to the library is located along the main student corridor. Along a three-story solid glass wall, individual study carrels enjoy natural light. Access to a small conference room in the library supports group research and presentation development.
The main classrooms and lounge are on the second floor. Two symposia rooms function as the main lecture rooms and have access to two conference rooms for small break-out or group sessions.
Overlooking the library is a student commons area for study or relaxation. A gym makes it possible to exercise without leaving the building. A separate wellness room is designated for private use such as religious worship, meditation, or for medication management.
Fourteen group rooms are located on the third floor for each six to eight person group. Each room has audiovisual equipment, smart boards, and a variety of other presentation media. Additionally, there is partitioned carrel space for each student and facilitator.
The medical school building houses 10 OSCE rooms, two of which are oversized to support team, group, and interdisciplinary training.
The AHP Lab will serve many specialty uses for disciplines including anatomy, histology and pathology. Procedures, dissection and micro section will take here.
