Formerly Auckland DHB Clinical Skills Centre

The Clinical Skills Centre (CSC) at Auckland City Hospital is a facility that allows clinical staff to learn, review and practise the skills they require to be healthcare practitioners.

The atmosphere in the CSC is both pleasant and quiet and this enables the learner to concentrate on self-development without the ever present conflict of ‘service versus training’.  It is conveniently sited on Level 4 in Building 01 (Support Building).

The CSC provides the venue and equipment for a diverse range of clinical skills including, but not limited to, resuscitation skills (both basic and advanced adult and basic paediatric life support), practical procedures and skills for ward staff, new graduates and staff of specialised units, anaesthetic and surgical techniques, Occupational Health & Safety-approved patient handling, communication and interviewing skills, hand washing techniques and universal standards.

There is a large range of clinical skills trainers and low to high fidelity full-body manikins available in the CSC. 

There is a fully equipped operating room (OR), set-up room and scrub bay which makes an ideal facility for learning OR culture, anaesthetic and surgical skills in a safe environment.  The OR is equipped with current and modern equipment including a Datex-Ohmeda anaesthetic machine, Drager monitoring, electric operating table, electro-surgical unit, case carts etc.

Large and small meeting and training rooms with interactive whiteboards are available for the ultimate learning experience.

The Te Toka Tumai Clinical Simulation Service Team are based in the CSC.

Some CSC rooms aren't available until further notice due to the current Facilities Infrastructure Remediation Programme
