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.
TWO OPERATIONAL LABS
MEDICAL SKILLS LAB
Postgraduates, undergraduates and nursing students are taught the basics of surgery, Trauma Life Support, Advanced Cardiac Life Support and other skills, through mannequins, models and simulation techniques.
& TRAINING UNIT
This lab prepares and hosts cadavers that act as ‘near-life’ specimen. This helps postgraduate students and medical professionals hone and advance their skills. The “Live Well, Leave Well” initiative ensures that cadaveric research at the ALC runs without pause, benefiting the medical community.

The museum houses 5 primary departments and has year-round designated areas for each. The display for each of these departments includes specimens, charts, educational articles, etc. All other departments have display access at the museum on a rotational basis to showcase interesting case studies. The space is designed to foster collaborative learning between the multiple departments.
Students are given the opportunity to analyse a patient body right from the symptoms to the treatment in a replicated clinical setting. This facility is also used to complement the practice of integrated teaching.
