The clinical skills lab. was established in 2006. the idea of implement of this project made up by the dean of Basra College of medicine, Prof. Thamer A Hamdan. The first equipage of lab. by plastic cross sections of all body organs but didn’t meet the target of ideal teaching and the increase of performance of medical students at the same time
Mr. Dean asked for more manikins useful for examinations that could not be performed on human because of our current believes of the society such as rectal, vaginal and breast examinations. Patients also may not agree about frequent examinations by multi students such as retinal, auscultation of respiratory and cardiac sounds, cannulation, and urethral catheterization.
All these models are computerized and were brought from well known sources in England and USA.
The skills lab. was partly set in the first floor while the second floor take the privacy of basic life support, advanced life support, advanced trauma life support and training of laparoscopic cholecystectomy for postgraduate doctors.
Many training cources and work shops were established with the MSF organization in clinical skills lab. We also have training programs in the next 4 months during 2010.
