The Advanced Learning Center (ALC) is a one-of-a-kind initiative that complements conventional bedside teaching by bringing practice-based learning to the fore. It is accessed by students, faculty and the nursing staff alike. It is well-known among other hospitals for its frequent workshops and implant validation programmes.
The ALC focuses on hands-on training and workshops where students are taught Basic & Advanced Surgical Skills
Courses are also tailor-made to teach specifics within basics, orthopaedics, ENT, endoscopic, temporal bone dissection or minimally invasive procedures, neurosurgery, general surgery, plastic surgery and OB-GYN.
Multispecialty staff use the resources at the ALC to conduct a variety of surgeries. An advanced multimedia section with a 100-person seating capacity is an advantage for students who are required to observe medical procedures virtually.
