UH College of Medicine breaks ground with inaugural class selected
With the inaugural class scheduled to start on July 20, classes will temporarily take place in the Health 2 building for the first two years of the program. Classes will be hosted in the new $80-million building once construction, which is expected to finish in 2022, is complete.
The medical school’s construction can be tracked by its time-lapse camera. This footage will show the construction site as progress is gradually made.
The College of Medicine’s full enrollment capacity will be 480 but will begin with a 30-person class. The second College of Medicine cohort will also be 30 people, gradually transitioning to a 60-person class for its third year.
Each member of this inaugural class will receive a $100,000 scholarship to go towards their tuition and fees.
