Osmania Medical College launched the first of its kind ‘Skill Lab’ in Telangana; at its campus in Koti, Skill Lab is a prototype demo and learning facility for healthcare professionals to fine tune their clinical skills, prior to real life application.
The Skill Lab is funded by the Department of Human Research, ministry of health and family welfare, Government of India under National Emergency Life Support. It will cater to nearly 500 undergraduates and postgraduates and several hundred para medical technicians every year. The Lab is a valuable platform for medical professionals to practice procedural skills like trauma management, basic life support, paediatric emergency, obstetrics emergency and acute cardiac management.
A five day Training of Trainers, is being hosted for the first time in Telangana; March 13 to 17 for medical, surgical, paediatric, anaesthetic and obstetrics speciality doctors from Government Medical College, Nizamabad; Gandhi Medical College, Guntur Medical College and Kakatiya Medical College.
Dr K Ramesh Reddy, director of medical education, Telangana said  in our training programmes the hands on skills which we need to tackle emergency cases is really lacking in many of our colleagues, it is something which is very important. When we were students these type of labs were not available and literally we used to get trained in the casualty. It was a different attitude at that time. The education of the younger generation has shifted from skill learning to bookish learning, they are more dependent on volumes of literature available to them. They are not showing interest in the treatment of the patients that will make a lot of difference in the days to come in the overall medical management. We need to take this very seriously and all the departments, especially the clinical departments should ensure proper training of the students in emergency skills. This is one area which is dynamic and few minutes could make or break the situation.
Similar Skill Lab facility will be shortly made available at Gandhi, Kakatiya Medical College, Nizamabad and Siddipet, also shortly will seek sanction for all the 17 medical colleges in the government sector in Telangana. Government of India has given a structured training program, without any deviation from that, a proper training program has to be held. Even the upgradation of training the trainers programme should be done at regular intervals, which is also important.
Dr P Shashikala Reddy, Principal, Osmania Medical College said, our students will now be able to proficiently manage surgical, cardiac and obstetric emergencies with greater efficiency and skill. Those undergoing training will be awarded nationally recognised training certificate from this facility, which is mandatory for every Indian Medical Graduate. With this facility Osmania students will be one of the best in dealing with the emergencies.
