VERNON – Students at UBC’s Southern Medical Program now have a space to call their own at the Vernon hospital.
A recently renovated medical school space has opened on the fifth floor of the Polson Tower.
It provides a clinical skills room, centralized education area, on-call sleep facilities, a lounge for medical students and other improvements.
“The new facilities will better support our program’s ability to deliver medical education and training both at Vernon Jubilee Hospital and within the Vernon community,” said UBC’s Regional Associate Dean for the Interior Dr. Allan Jones in a news release.
The Ministry of Health provided almost $1 million for the construction and equipment costs.
