Medical students have a new space to study and relax at Wayne State University School of Medicine.
The new Student Relaxation Area, located in Room 1328 on the first floor of Scott Hall, opened for medical students on January 5.
The room, adjoining the cafeteria, is reserved for medical students. It is available seven days a week.
The space, said Dean Mark E. Schweitzer, MD, “is the latest development in our” You Said, We Did “project, and is based on feedback from medical students that additional space was needed for student relaxation and study. “
The newly furnished space offers modular and reconfigurable seating and tables to meet the needs of students and groups.
Medical students can access the space via a keypad code used to enter all areas reserved for students.
Dean Schweitzer said similar relaxation and study areas at the Shiffman Medical Library and University Health Center will be announced later this year.
“The students and management of the School of Medicine worked together to design and convert the old lecture hall into a new space for relaxation and study,” he said. “Such cooperation is integral to improving our facilities for current and future students. I would like to thank the students who dedicated their time and effort to make this space a space that all students can enjoy.
