|Class Rooms and Laboratories|
Although the hospital buildings have been in use for the last few years and have been expanded considerably, facilities at the college premises are fast developing and are housed in an independent building within the boundaries of Shifa International Hospital.
All class rooms are equipped with on-line satellite based internet access, over-head projectors, slide projectors, and multi-media projection. Central air-conditioning provides necessary comfort to make the environment conducive to attentive learning.
The Anatomy Department has a spacious dissection hall and there are well stocked museums for Anatomy, Pathology, Community Medicine and Forensic Medicine.
A “Shifa Clinical Skills and Informatics Laboratory” (SCIL) caters to the need for acquisition of psychomotor skills and medical informatics, competencies so vital in the context of modern trends in medical education. A total of 40 workstation and multi media projector units’ simulated videos of procedural skills adorn the SCIL lab. Several mannequins are available for learning procedural skills in a “safe” environment. A special feature of this laboratory is the Periodic Program of Advanced Adult Cardiac Life Support and Pediatric Life Support (held under direction of and in collaboration with Lifesavers Foundation) a curricular requirement of graduating medical students.
