Clinical Skills Training and Assessment Room (CSTAR)

About the club

CSTAR (Clinical Skills Training and Assessment Room) aims to provide opportunities for medical students to develop their clinical proficiency. To this end, CSTAR has designed an academic program inspired in structure by our block-based medical curriculum. The club runs peer-guided workshops to teach students interviewing and examining techniques, and test their clinical reasoning when interacting with patients. In addition, CSTAR has developed a clinical simulation room that can be used by all medical students. The room is modelled after a standard doctor’s office with all the basic medical equipment needed for students to practice physical examination skills, or standardized patient cases, in a stress-free and safe environment.
