The Clinical Skill Laboratory & OSCE Center unit is one of the supporting units for academic activities in the Bachelor of Medicine Program and the Medical Doctor Program at the Faculty of Medicine, Universitas Syiah Kuala.
The Role of the Clinical Skill Laboratory & OSCE Center Unit in the Bachelor of Medicine Program
The Skills Lab Unit activities include the implementation of 59 clinical skills, basic to advanced stages which are taught in 7 semesters during student education in the Bachelor of Medicine program. The purpose and objective of the Clinical Skill Laboratory learning is to provide students with various medical skills as preparation to proceed to the next stage, namely medical professional education, so that students have the ability to perform medical skills correctly, systematically and according to procedures.
Skills lab activities are in the form of guided activities that are guided directly by FK-USK teaching staff called instructors using the doctor-patient role play technique of fellow students, as well as using props/mannequins provided by the Clinical Skill Laboratory unit. In practice, students can practice by trial and error, can be repeated until skilled by using a checklist according to the skills being trained as a reference. In the last session, each student's skill will be evaluated individually. In practice, the Clinical Skill Laboratory and OSCE center units coordinate with other units in scheduling and implementing activities. The assessment of the activity process in the Skills Lab unit includes an assessment in terms of cognitive (Workplan & Pretest), Attitude scores and Motor Values. The final score of students is obtained from the value of the activity process plus the score of the OSCE (Objective Structured Clinical Examination) final exam. The Skills Lab unit has 24 POBs (Baku Operational Procedures) which are guidelines in carrying out the main tasks and functions for the Clinical Skill Laboratory & OSCE Center Unit.
In supporting learning during the pandemic, the Skills Lab Unit under the direction of the Head of the Bachelor of Medicine Program and the Faculty Leader carries out the process of making clinical skills teaching videos that are used as Clinical Skill Laboratory teaching materials during the Covid-19 Pandemic. The learning process is carried out online with the Zoom Meeting application.
