Clinical Skills for Health Professionals

Clinical Skills Trainings for Students of All Levels

Are your students missing out on hands on clinical skills training? When simulations just aren’t cutting it, our interactive workshops are the answer! Our Clinical Teaching Associates (CTAs) are highly trained in creating a safe environment for your students to receive feedback and support while training them to provide thorough and comfortable intimate exams.

 

Learn the techniques…

These sessions are the perfect introduction to invasive exams or a great technique refresher. They Basic Skills sessions are best taken back to back as techniques applicable to both exams are split between the two sessions. Students are taught to adapt these skills to patients of any gender.
