Medical students have a new area in which to study and relax at the Wayne State University School of Medicine.
The new Student Relaxation Space, located in Room 1328 on the first floor of Scott Hall, opened for use by medical students Jan. 5.
The room, adjacent to the cafeteria, is open to medical students only. It is available seven days a week.
The space, said Dean Mark E. Schweitzer, M.D., “is the latest development in our ‘You Said, We Did’ project, and is based on medical student input that additional space was needed for student relaxation and study.”
The newly furnished space offers modular and reconfigurable seating and tables to meet student and group needs.
Medical students can access the space via a keypad code used to enter all areas designated students-only.
Dean Schweitzer said that similar relaxation and study areas in the Shiffman Medical Library and the University Health Center will be announced later this year.
“Students and School of Medicine leadership worked together to design and convert the former conference room into the new relaxation and study space,” he said. “Such cooperation is integral to improving our facilities for current and future students. I want to thank the students who dedicated their time and efforts to making this space one that all students can enjoy.”
