    Construction is expected to wrap up in late October on the UNLV medical school’s first permanent facility, and students will use the space starting spring semester.

    The new medical education building is nearly complete on a 9-acre campus on Shadow Lane across from Valley Hospital Medical Center in the Las Vegas Medical District.

    The building’s design is functional for the curriculum but also was created to have a calming effect for students, said Maureen Schafer, president and CEO of the Nevada Health and Bioscience Corp., which is overseeing the project.

    While giving the Las Vegas Review-Journal a tour inside the building Wednesday, Schafer pointed out large windows on the back side of the third floor.

    “It’s all windows,” she said. “It’s all light.”
