CLINICAL SKILLS CENTER

   

The Clinical Skills Center offers students a safe and controlled environment for learning, practicing and refining essential clinical and interpersonal skills to develop the competency and confidence needed to provide high-quality interdisciplinary care to actual patients.

  • 7 full-service simulation rooms including a simulation hospital ward, emergency response/cardiology, adult, pediatric, neonatal, obstetric rooms as well as an ultrasound suite.
  • Fundamentals of Endoscopic Surgery (FES) and Fundamentals of Laparoscopic Surgery (FLS) training programs, the only one in northern Louisiana and one of two in the state.
  • 3 procedural and technical skills labs
  • 15 standardized-patient exam rooms

All simulation rooms provide integrated high tech and audio-visual systems and medical mannequins designed to replicate real world scenarios. There are dedicated debriefing stations where students review their performance and receive feedback.
