School of Medicine: Queen's $77 million School of Medicine building opened officially on September 22, 2011. The expanded facilities of the new School of Medicine enhance the education of our students and ultimately provide our region, province, and country with greater access to doctors. The new facility hosts a state-of-the-art teaching clinic, lecture halls and large teaching spaces, simulation labs, surgical/technical skills labs, small-group and seminar rooms, info-commons and virtual learning spaces, and student study spaces. The buildings architects are Diamond and Schmitt Architects (Toronto) and Shoalts and Zaback Architects Ltd. (Kingston). Federal and provincial governments invested $56-million in the building through the Canada-Ontario Knowledge Infrastructure Program. Abramsky House: 80 Barrie Street was officially named Abramsky House during a ceremony on September 21, 2011, in recognition of the Abramsky family's ongoing commitment to medical education at Queen's. The Abramsky family is well known in Kingston for their philanthropy and community support, and donated $500,000 to support the new home for the Queen's School of Medicine. Abramsky House, fully renovated and attached to the new School of Medicine Building, now serves as the new administrative offices for undergraduate medical studies.
