$8 million Woodruff Foundation Grant to Support GHSU Education Commons

Georgia Health Sciences University has received notice of an $8 million grant from the Robert W. Woodruff Foundation to help build an interprofessional state-of-the-art simulation center in the university’s planned Education Commons building.

The commons is slated to be a five-story, 160,000-square-foot building with classroom space for GHSU’s College of Dental Medicine and Medical College of Georgia. The lab will include state-of-the-art standardized patient rooms and high-fidelity patient simulators. The simulation lab will be used by the various health professions disciplines. The total construction cost of the project, including the simulation lab, is $76.5 million.

“Partnerships like this one with the Woodruff Foundation are critical in advancing the vision of Georgia Health Sciences to be a globally recognized research university and academic health center, while transforming the region into a health care and biomedical research destination,” said GHSU President Ricardo Azziz. “Research has repeatedly shown that students and clinicians trained with simulation demonstrate markedly better knowledge, skills and behaviors at the bedside.”
