Representing the first completed phase of the Stanford University School of Medicine’s master plan, the 120,000-sq-ft building brings together cutting-edge medicine, modern education, and advanced technology, while serving as a new academic and social hub for the Stanford campus.

Whiting Turner served as the general contractor on the $90-million project.

Set at the crossroads between the Stanford Medical Center and adjacent science quads on a new landscaped pedestrian thoroughfare, the center establishes a new front door for the School of Medicine. At the public level, the center offers multiple points of entry that invite the campus community into its large auditoria, café and bookstore, while allowing for an easy flow through the building.

The centerpiece of the LKSC is the Hon Mai and Joseph Goodman Center for Simulation and Immersive Learning, which engages students in hospital simulations and actor-based standardized patient exercises.
