To design for future medical professionals, it’s crucial to understand their needs as students. DesignGroup anticipates the environments in which they’ll learn, work, and treat patients. We balance the technical demands of healthcare design with a thoughtful understanding of the challenging, and often stressful, medical school journey. 

The result: spaces that provide both real-world medical simulations and specific zones for instructor engagement and student collaboration.
