In response to North Carolina’s shortage of primary care physicians and the state’s growing population, Campbell decided to perform a master plan study for a College of Osteopathic Medicine.

Little develop a masterplan for a medical campus that would allow for five buildings, including this four-story School of Osteopathic Medicine. At the time of completion, it was the first new medical school established in North Carolina in 35 years. The entire facility is a learning laboratory comprised of both formal and informal spaces stitched together by three design principles: learning is everywhere, transparency promotes informal learning opportunities and team-based problem solving is imperative to successful diagnosis and prepares students to collaborate with others in a real-world environment.
