The teaching and learning exercises are designed to be holistic in view of provision of patient focused care by treating the individual with dignity, respect and compassion and being sensitive to the diversity of human needs.

They are also trained in Basic Life support (BLS) and Advanced cardiac life support (ACLS) at the simulation Lab. This kind of training helps them to manage life threatening emergencies with confidence.
