There is a lounge for Standardized Patients (SP). The SP Bank at AKU has 80 registered simulated patients and 5 real patients.
The SP Bank includes healthy people, actual patients with chronic but stable health problems as well as actors who are trained by the clinical faculty to act out situations in a consistent manner according to the need of the programme and demands of educational experience.
At CIME, the novice students needed a safe environment to learn, make mistakes and practice clinical skills, before they apply these skills on real, sick patients. The SPs give feedbacks to the students on their performance thus help in boosting their confidence.
The enclosed and serene CIME Courtyard with the AKU signature architectural theme of harmoniously blending water, trees, marble benches and air tunnels, is a popular site for holding literary and art events, functions and dinners.
