Finding Your Way Around the Clinical Science Center

 

Students in the MD Program at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health will take many clinical rotations in the Clinical Science Center (also known as the CSC and University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics). Navigating the Clinical Science Center can be confusing to new students. The following tips with help with wayfinding.

 

Each section (module) of the CSC is numbered and lettered on a coordinate system. Letters are on a north-south axis and numbers are on an east-west axis. The lettering begins at the south end (near the William S. Middleton Memorial Veterans Hospital) with the letter "A" and progresses to "K" at the far north end (near Nielsen tennis stadium). The numbers begin with 1 on the west side (near the emergency entrance) and progress through 6 on the east side (main entrance).

 

Each room in the Clinical Science Center can be identified by an alphanumeric designation, such as B4/628. The first letter and number refer to the module coordinates; the next number refers to the floor; and the last two numbers indicate the room number.

 

Using the example above, this room is in the B4 module on the sixth floor, room number 28.

 

Note that you will not find all six east-west sections on every floor. Also, hallways on floors 1-3 and portions of floors 4-6 were built at a 45-degree angle to the coordinate axes. So, to get from D5 to F5 on the third floor, you can't just go straight through E5.
