Skill labs are educational facilities that have the potential benefit for undergraduate and postgraduate Medical, Dental and Other health students. They provide a safe and protected environment in which the learner can practice clinical skills with the opportunity for hands-on practice with anatomical models and simulators before applying skills in real life situations, preparing them for better practice in the workforce.
These skills labs help to ensure that all students acquire the necessary techniques and are properly assessed before practising on real patients. In addition, they support the acquisition, maintenance and enhancement of the clinical skills of students in the healthcare profession.
Clinical skills acquisition is an important aspect and bridge between gaining procedural knowledge and clinical competence. Those skill labs offer a ‘mistake forgiving’ training environment.
