The Clinical Skills Centre is a dedicated and purpose built facility primarily for the development of clinical medical students and doctor’s in training. The centre provides a safe environment for the teaching and learning of clinical and communication skills where students can practise prior to performing skills on patients.
The Centre will provide additional resource and training to complement actual bedside and clinic based teaching to support doctors in training and ultimately improve the care that Addenbrooke’s and Cambridge trained doctors give to patients.
The Centre aims to both ensure the quality of clinical teaching, learning opportunities and ensure the development of appropriate clinical competencies in medical students and doctors in training. The CSU staff, in collaboration with attachment directors will facilitate the delivery and co-ordination of learning events within the Skills Centre.
