Faculty of Medicine of General Sir John Kotelawala Defence University (KDU) has taken the initiative to establish Clinical Skills Lab, right from its inception. The facilities available, including the high fidelity SIMMAN simulator has already placed it as one of the well equipped skills lab in the South East Asian region. The simulators available are being used for both training and assessment of clinical skills of undergraduates. Furthermore, the scope for advanced training and evaluation of skills in emergency resuscitation has been recognized and are being developed for training of postgraduates. The Clinical skills lab and simulation rooms together with debriefing rooms provide the opportunity for the undergraduate and postgraduate students to engage in simulation based medical education with its recent advances.
The facilities are used for training programs conducted by foreign faculties as well as outstation training programs conducted for medical and allied health personnel all over the country.
