Oakland University’s Human Health Building Shapes Health Care

Retired president of Oakland University, Dr. Gary Russi served almost two decades at the school. While leading the university’s educational and growth initiatives, Dr. Gary Russi added 64 new academic degree programs and opened the Human Health Building in 2012.

Made of eco-friendly materials, the Human Health Building serves as a collaborative environment for educating future healthcare professionals and houses the university’s School of Nursing and School of Health Sciences. The 172,000-square-foot building features nine classrooms, teaching labs, administrative offices, and a large auditorium to carry out medical forums.

Incorporating the latest technologies such as simulated patient models, students gain hands-on experience in their fields of study. Simulation labs ranging from surgical to neonatal intensive care prepare students to react to and solve medical scenarios. Furthermore, the labs offer realistic learning experiences through the use of robotics and visual recreations of occupational hazards. Research facilities, physical therapy suites, and an on-site health clinic also provide students access to learning opportunities.
