During the first two years of medical school, student activities at The University of Oklahoma College of Medicine are centralized in the Basic Sciences Education Building (BSE). Virtually all class-based coursework is provided here.
Each class of approximately 130 students is divided into eight "modules" which serve as their "home" within the BSE. Here, each student has a desk and personal storage area as well as access to permanent computer workstations. "Module Mates" form an important support structure and rich social network, if not a virtual family for our students. The modules also serve as an important site for small group discussions and many of the student-centered learning activities of the College. The student lounge, located in the same building, has activities such as a foosball table and large flat-screen TV. Other spaces for studying and lounging include the Boren Lounge, David L. Boren Student Union, Robert M. Bird Library.
