Abstract

Clinical skills centers have become an integral part of the curricular requirements in most modern medical schools and postgraduate centers; worldwide. There has also been a growing interest in the development of clinical skills laboratories in the developing countries in the past decade. Lahore Medical and Dental College, Lahore, Pakistan took the initiative of developing a low cost clinical skills lab in July 2010.The development of skills lab required a multi-step approach. A six steps approach of Syme-Drant (2005) was modified and used to develop clinical skills lab teaching and learning protocols. The objective of this study is to describe the stages involved in the development of a low cost, clinical skills training center in a medical college in a developing country.
