AIM

The AIMST Clinical Skills Centre was established, as an avenue for Medical Students to use Mannequins and Human Simulators, to acquire Supervised Clinical Skills Training and practice procedures necessary for clinical competency.

The Spiral Clinical Skills Training starts from the 1st year of the Medical Curriculum with Basic Life Support (BLS) skills followed by training in Clinical Skills and Procedures of Organ-Based Systems (Cardiovascular, Respiratory, Gastrointestinal, Genitourinary, Endocrine, Re[productive and Central Nervous System) using low fidelity mannequins. High fidelity METI mannequins, such as iSTAN, ECS (Emergency Care Simulator) and HPS (Human Patient Simulator), are used for training during the 2nd to the 5th year in Acute Emergency and Chronic Scenarios.

OBJECTIVES

  • To enhance the competency of students in clinical skills and procedures prior to Ward Clinical postings
  • To standardize clinical Skills and procedures comparable with that of practiced internationally
  • To encourage students to develop a habit of continuous self-learning
  • To motivate students to develop a searching mind-set in order to acquire more knowledge about the skills
  • To instill self confidence in the students in performing clinical skills and procedures on real patients

The AIMST University Student Health Clinic is dedicated to provide routine medical care as well as emergency treatments to staff and students. A token charge is levied for this service at the start of each academic year.

Students need to be healthy in mind and in body to handle the challenges of the academic programme they have enrolled in. They have to adapt to a whole new environment away from home. Academic pressure, change of food and lifestyle can affect the health of students.

The University Health Clinic was officially opened on 12 May 2003 with student health needs in mind. The clinic is manned by our own University doctors who provide medical attention to students, provide medicines or refer them to hospitals for special attention or admission when necessary. University staff also use the services of the clinic.
