Bond University’s state-of-the-art clinical skills rooms are purpose-built clinical facilities within the Faculty of Health Sciences and Medicine.
The clinical rooms provide practical experience for students in the medical, dietetic and physiotherapy programs. Students become familiar with hospital-based and outpatient environments within a variety of settings.
All rooms are fitted with state-of-the-art equipment and reflect what is currently used in clinical practice. These authentic experiences assist students to integrate theory with practice.
Large clinical skills room
Bond University's large clinical skills room is designed to simulate hospital settings.
Students are exposed to a variety of real-world situations before they commence placement in ward areas. This is achieved by:
- Computerised simulation with real industry equipment
- Patient actors
- Human patient simulators (fully interactive mannequins that manifest physical signs and symptoms such as breathing, heart sounds and pupil responses)
Students work with the simulators alongside academics and health care professionals. Simulation is incorporated into early learning within most of the health care programs and becomes more complex as students progress through their course.
Bond University's medical, physiotherapy and dietetic students also gain practical experience at the Clinical Education and Research Centre at Robina Hospital.
Small clinical skills rooms
Located at Bond University's main campus as well as the Bond Institute of Health and Sport, the small clinical skills rooms are equipped to reflect the outpatient setting.
Students become familiar with a more intimate patient environment, similar to a professional clinic.
