Duke St. The location is the former downtown Durham headquarters for Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina and has been the home of the PA program since January 2009. The building is a two-story brick structure that dates back to the early 1960s. It contains a large state-of-the-art classroom, four physical diagnosis labs, 10 student seminar breakout rooms, and dedicated space for patient simulators. There are warm welcoming spaces for students, with cozy study nooks and open spaces for students to collaborate and learn together. The kitchen area and lounge are inviting and spacious and serve students, faculty and staff who mix and mingle together at break times.
