LYNCHBURG, Va. (AP) - Liberty University is holding a dedication ceremony for its new Center for Medical and Health Sciences building.

The Friday ceremony will involve about 300 guests.

The school broke ground on the $41 million, 144,000-square-foot facility in 2012. It became home to the new Liberty University College of Osteopathic Medicine and the Master of Public Health program in June.

The medical school is the second in Virginia and the 30th in the nation to offer education leading to the Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine degree.

The four-story building includes simulation and standardized patient education facilities; extensive clinical medicine, osteopathic manipulative medicine and anatomy labs; a learning resource center; and an interactive electronic medical library.
