OUWB celebrates launch of new medical laboratoriesThis August, the Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine celebrated the opening of the new Hannah Hall of Science School of Medicine Laboratories.
The new labs will provide state-of-the-art space for teaching human medical gross anatomy, neuroanatomy, microbiology, immunology, pathology, physiology and other disciplines.
Interdisciplinary education with medical and physical therapy students will take place in the new anatomy lab. The medical school active learning lab will also be used collaboratively for teaching physiology to undergraduate biology students.
Oakland University faculty, staff, students and supporters joined OUWB School of Medicine Founding Dean Robert Folberg at a ribbon cutting ceremony and tour of the new facility. Arthur Dalley, Ph.D., author of "Clinically Oriented Anatomy and Essential Clinical Anatomy," delivered the keynote address.
The labs are located in Hannah Hall of Science on the campus of Oakland University.
The OUWB was established in 2011 with a charter class of 50 students. The OUWB is Michigan's first new medical school in 47 years, and combines science coursework with clinical training through every step of the program.
