Kanbar Center for Simulation, Clinical Skills and Telemedicine Education
Clinical Skills Education
Healthcare professional education programs are designed to accommodate a variety of clinical skills activities tailored for medical students throughout the four-year curriculum as well as for inter-professional and continuing medical education. We work in partnership with clinicians and multi-disciplinary educators to create innovative learning projects designed to enhance a variety of summative and formative exercises.
With the use of standardized patients (SPs) students can practice hands-on skills in a safe and realistic ambulatory setting.
Standardized Patient Program
The Standardized Patient Program is dedicated to promoting better health outcomes by improving the quality of health education training through the use of SPs- a dynamic educational resource.
