Clinical Skills Drop In Sessions

We are running clinical skills drop-in sessions in the Mastery Training Room, Education Centre, Level 1, St John's Hospital. All are welcome to attend, although at the moment this is aimed primarily at medical students. We hope to expand to cater for the needs of doctors in training in the future.

We are running also supervised training drop in sessions regularly with medical education fellows.

Upcoming dates for supervised drop in sessions (venepuncture, cannulation, oxygen therapy)

Wednesday 14th December 2022 10am - 12pm

To complement this, we are going to trial an 'open lab' approach to allow you the opportunity for self-directed deliberate practice. This will start from Friday the 11th November 2022, and you are welcome to drop in any time between the hours of 9am and 4pm, Monday to Friday. We ask that you complete the sign-in sheet, follow the instructions in the room, treat the equipment with respect and leave the clinical skills room clean and tidy when you are finished.
