Clinical Training Facility

Facility/Reservations


Classroom Facility (105A & 105F)

We have two classrooms that can be expanded into one large lecture room. Both classrooms seat 24. Each classroom is equipped with a computer and projector, and is capable of streaming live audio and video from the skills area to the classroom screen. The rooms can be configured to project separate presentations in each room, or combine to project the main presentation in both areas.

Clinical Skills Area (Youngblood Medical Skills Laboratory – 105K)

The large skills area consists of three patient care bays, each with video and audio recording. Each bay can be closed off with a glass partition that greatly reduced sound transfer, or opened into one large room. There are two sinks and counters in this area. The work areas within this area are flexible, but each area is normally set up as an ED/ICU bay. A hospital bed is available to be moved into this area when needed.

Exam Room Suite (105H)

The exam room suite consists of four examination rooms with exam tables and diagnostic tools. The exam rooms open into a common space with a large screen monitor and table for local debriefing. Each exam room has a sink, and can be used for small group skills training as well.

Operating Room (105M)

This is room is configured as an operating suite for the Anesthesia Assistant program, but is available for other users. This room has an anesthesia machine, operating table, and houses the difficult airway equipment. There is a wall-mounted dry-erase board in this room.

Policies & Procedures

The Reservation Process:

Generally, departments of the UMKC School of Medicine with a need for skills or simulation training have the highest priority in scheduling. Meetings and events such as journal clubs without a skills training component are the lowest priority, and are discouraged from using the lab for this purpose. To assure the best possibility for receiving the time and space desired, reservations submitted for the coming academic term, prior to the start of the term, have the best chance of being scheduled. Reservations may be made up to 24 hours in advance, but the more notice the better. While we will make every attempt to provide the requested space, we reserve the right to move groups within the lab to make the best possible use of resources.

Submitting a Reservation Request:

The CTF Reservation Form may be submitted in person, by fax, mail, or email. It is available in a pdf format that may be completed on your computer and printed out or emailed. Reservation forms can be obtained from the lab, or by emailing ganssp@umkc.edu. Submit the request by email to medicalskillslab@umkc.edu; fax to 235-6191, mail to the CTF, or feel free to hand deliver (Requests with less than 72 hours lead time must be delivered in person).

Cancellations:

We understand that schedules and plans change. Space and time in the CTF is at a premium; therefore, if you must cancel a reservation, we ask that you notify us as soon as possible. Chances are very good another group is waiting to use the space.

Food:

Bottled water only is allowed in the classroom areas of the CTF, otherwise there is no food and drink permitted in the facility.
