Clinical Skills Rooms
Bond University’s state-of-the-art Clinical Skills Rooms are purpose-built clinical facilities within the Faculty of Health Sciences and Medicine, encompassing a large clinical skills room and multiple smaller skills rooms.
Large Clinical Skills Room
The large clinical skills room is set up to recreate a hospital setting and is fitted with X-ray boxes, patient beds and a scrub station.
Enhanced practical learning
Students have access to over $200,000 worth of high-fidelity mannequins from their first semester in Bond’s 4 years 8 month MBBS program.
Each mannequin is programmable to simulate real-life medical situations and is able to have vital statistics such as blood pressure and heart rate input. Students proactively work with the mannequins; each affectionately provided a name for relate-ability, to diagnose the medical condition.
The mannequins are incorporated into early learning within the program and are used in more complex ways as the student’s progress through the course.
Hospital Standard Equipment
The clinical facility is also equipped with other models and equipment to enable students to develop their practical skills including:
- Lumbar punctures
- Air way management
Small Clinical Skills Rooms
Bond University's small Clinical Skills/Communications Rooms are flexible spaces equipped with a range of state-of-the art equipment including:
- Various anatomical models
- X-Ray boxes in each room
Assessment of students
The small clinical skills rooms have video and voice streaming tools designed to assist in development of Doctor-patient interactions and communication. The streaming facilities are frequently used by MBBS students and are an effective means of examination for academics.
