Located on the 5th and 6th floors of the Perelman Center for Advanced Medicine at UPenn, the Jordan Medical Education Center (JMEC) and plays a prominent role in advancing innovation in all aspects of the medical profession. The Jordan Medical Education Center integrates research and clinical facilities with classrooms and other educational spaces. With the main showcase of the space being a three-story atrium that is flooded with natural light, and behind the presentation stage, provides a wonderful view of the Philadelphia skyline. Utilizing multiple aspects of the footprint of the building, there are gardens and outdoor patios along the exterior of the JMEC which allow students and researchers to spend time outdoors while staying on campus and without the noise of being on street level.
