Continuing medical education for life is a basic requirement for developing the professional life of primary health care physicians to maintain the competence necessary to practice the profession and to continue developing scientific and practical knowledge, which enhances their capabilities, meets the needs of patients and responds to health priorities in the country. Therefore, Ibn Sina University established the Ibrahim El-Zein Center for Continuing Medical Training in 2018.
Ibrahim El-Zein Training Center (IBRAZ) at Ibn Sina University consists of 8 rooms used by more than 120 students daily. The rooms are equipped with many mission training models that include a medical mission training simulator.
The center has the latest medical simulation equipment at a high level of accuracy, for example:
These simulators are an alternative to physiological models of the body and are programmed for a wide range of clinical scenarios that allow simulation of clinical trials to occur and sometimes replace certain aspects of hospital training in an attempt to overcome the problem of limited clinical presence. Scenarios range anywhere from common medical conditions to more complex ones.
Furthermore, the center is equipped with smart screens, control rooms for OSCEs exams, digital projectors, plasma screens and chart computers attached to the medical beds, where students can practice various medical skills and procedures. Faculty and coaches plan, prepare, and teach to reflect real-life hospital care situations. Extensively utilizing equipment, students can practice important procedures on lifelike body parts and life-size models and learn techniques such as oxygenation, blood, oral medications, intravenous administration of patients, wound care, airway management, tracheostomy and more. The College of Medicine is constantly updating the equipment and spaces at the Ibrahim Al-Zein Training Center for its clinical skills.The IBRAZ training center at Ibn Sina University will offer continuing medical education courses in clinical medicine, to who are competent to provide primary health care services.
