Clinical skills acquisition is a unique and interesting aspect of medical education; it can be an enjoyable, enriching and memorable experience for both dedicated tutors and students.

The Communication and Clinical Skills Course provides the foundational skills in communication and physical examination that are essential for a successful year.

The Clinical Skills curriculum provides a unique opportunity to impart not only knowledge but skill and wisdom gained from clinical encounters. As a student, practice, as well as learning is necessary for acquiring a solid framework for the acquisition of future knowledge and skills. With the resources of the Clinical Teaching Centre students have the opportunity to develop and practise the skills necessary to work effectively with colleagues and other health professionals.
