- Comfortable facilities for the dedicated group of 'volunteer patients' who support the teaching of clinical skills
- A 220 seat lecture theatre allowing Aberdeen to host national and international conferences
- An advanced teletechnology infrastructure – an IT suite running the most up-to- date training applications and a range of innovative simulators including the UK's first 'sim-baby'
- Modern teaching, learning and discussion spaces including break out areas, café and social spaces which will encourage inter-professional learning and working
- A public 'shop-front' museum area presenting the history of medicine in the North-east and its contribution to the world
