FSU College of Medicine
Students practice interview, physical exam and communication skills and develop clinical reasoning under the direct guidance of clinical faculty in the Clinical Learning Center – a state-of-the-art facility that accurately simulates the clinic environment. Standardized patients immerse students in realistic scenarios and patient interactions that integrate knowledge and skills acquired in Doctoring and basic science courses. High-tech adult and infant mannequins can simulate a variety of conditions, from wheezing to cardiac arrest, enabling students to learn how to react to the unexpected in a no-risk environment. The design of the Center also provides a realistic setting for medical students to learn how to interact with other members of the health care team. Recordings of each student performance are available for self-assessment and review with clinical mentors. Thus, each CLC encounter provides opportunities for both formative and summative assessment of curriculum competencies in a clinical context.
