There is no doubt that the service and delivery of healthcare is undergoing a rapid—and some would say long overdue—change. The global pandemic has brought to light the gross inefficiencies and inequalities in healthcare systems and, more importantly, the urgency of improving now. Already a trend, one that is increasing, healthcare is being provided outside of the traditional hospital setting, moving to clinics and even to retail environments. The courses of the healthcare academy look at many aspects of architectural design for an evolving healthcare environment, from optimizing acoustics in new types of healthcare facilities to being prepared for the next pandemic. The Healthcare Academy will help you keep pace with the rapid changes being seen in healthcare.
