[Source: KGUN] – The state Board of Regents has endorsed a $187 million expansion plan for the University of Arizona College of Medicine-Phoenix.

At its recent meeting in Tucson, the board approved the plan to build a Health Sciences Education Building and other improvements on the downtown Phoenix Biomedical Campus. It will allow the College of Medicine-Phoenix to train more physicians.

The Health Sciences Education Building will house classrooms and a simulation center to help the College of Medicine-Phoenix expand its current class size of 48 students per year to at least 110.

The expansion plan, which has been approved twice by the Arizona Legislature, still must be reviewed by the Joint Committee on Capital Review before ground can be broken.
