Downtown USF College of Medicine
The University of South Florida’s new Morsani College of Medicine and Heart Institute is scheduled to open in 2019 as one of the cornerstones of Water Street Tampa. The $3 billion redevelopment of downtown is the idea of Lightning owner Jeff Vinik, who was recently joined by officials from USF and the city to celebrate the start of construction. We’ll hear from them, along with some med school students who are excited about their new home, on University Beat on WUSF Public Media.
The first stages of construction of the USF Health Morsani College of Medicine are taking place in downtown Tampa as the beginning of the Water Street Tampa redevelopment project.
