Center for Clinical Skills
The Center for Clinical Skills Education is a state-of-the-art facility for case development consultations, assessment, and teaching of clinical skills. Our Center has developed a collection of clinical cases that utilize standardized patients to assess medical, pharmacy, and nursing students, and health related professionals in taking:
- a history
- performing a physical exam
- communicating with the patient
- determining a differential diagnosis
- developing a treatment plan
A major area of interest is the patient and health professional relationship with detailed feedback on the adequacy of these skills. This approach to assessment can be tailored to match the needs of other professionals.
