UW Health Sciences Education Building

The future of healthcare education

Training the next generation of leaders in dentistry, medicine, nursing, pharmacy, public health and social work

The opening of the Health Sciences Education Building on the UW Seattle campus in September 2022 allowed students in the UW’s health sciences schools — dentistry, medicine, nursing, pharmacy, public health and social work — to share a technologically sophisticated building complete with spaces and resources promoting active learning, interdisciplinary education and collaboration. This new approach benefits the health of individuals — and entire populations.

The groundbreaking for the new Health Sciences Education Building took place on August 27. This state-of-the-art facility, located on the University of Washington Seattle Campus, is the culmination of years of collaboration between the six Health Sciences Schools, investment from the Washington State Legislature and generous donors.
