The main objective of the reformed new medical curriculum (CBME) is to provide medical students with knowledge, skills and attitude required for their practice.
This unit is a learning laboratory which provides excellent learning opportunities for the Undergraduate, Postgraduates, Interns, Nursing Staff, Medical faculty and Paramedical personals to practice basic and specific clinical skills either independently or mediated by teaching staff and the provision of computer aided teaching programs. The models and manikins that are available in the clinical skill lab are designed to support the clinical skills that are required to be learned during the medical training and to ensure that the program outcome is met.
The active learning experiences in the clinical skill lab and the enhancement of the scientific principles in the technical skills prepare the student for real life situation and the ability to engage in self-directed learning activities. The learning activities allow the student to engage in repeated practice of a particular clinical skill until a competency is reached to perform the same clinical procedure on real patients. This will ensure that the graduates produced at the end of the program is knowledgeable and safe. So far about 4500 participants have undergone training in BLS and CPCR.
The monitoring committee headed by Dr.A.Bhaskaran, Prof & HoD (General Surgery), consists of enthusiastic faculty from all the clinical subjects.
