In fall 2008, the medical school held a grand opening for a new Medical Education Center in White Hall (shown left). The new facility is the result of a three-year project to completely renovate the former Frederick A. White Health Center for Ambulatory Care and to expand the building with an 18,000-square-foot addition. In total, the facility now includes more than 84,000 square feet of lecture halls, classrooms, laboratories, offices, study spaces, computer labs, and common areas, all devoted to the specialized training of tomorrow's finest medical professionals. Last year, the facility was renamed Gandhi Medical Education Center in honor of the generous support of Ramesh and Saroj Gandhi. (Read more here.)
