Innovative Learning Centre for Medicine

Message from Honorary Director 

Dr. P. P. Chen

 
It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the Hong Kong Jockey Club Innovative Learning Centre for Medicine at the Hong Kong Academy of Medicine. The HKJC ILCM was established with a generous donation from the Hong Kong Jockey Club, and was formally opened in December 2013. The Centre promotes innovative learning strategies and platforms to enhance learning and education in medicine and other healthcare disciplines, to achieve safe and quality patient care.

The HKJC ILCM is equipped with part-task trainers, skill training simulators and high fidelity human patient simulators in a facility that may simulate different clinical settings including operating theatre, clinical wards, emergency room, intensive care unit and obstetric labour room. There is also a virtual reality room that facilitates game-based training technology, and a 360 degrees panoramic screen for disaster command and decision-making as well as clinical management training.

The HKJC ILCM strives to support the learning needs of HKAM Fellows and Members, and provides related educational resources to their parent Colleges. All HKAM Colleges, individual Fellows and members of Simulation Alliance are welcome to organize training courses at the HKJC ILCM. I also welcome your suggestion and feedback in our quest for continuing quality improvement. We look forward to seeing you at the Centre.
