Mandeville Regional Hospital - opens teaching facility
Mandeville Regional Hospital (MRH) has boosted its capacity for medical education through the opening of an Internal Medicine Teaching Room, which will be used to teach medical students, conduct clinical meetings and review medical journals, as well as formulate and execute research.
The teaching room is co-sponsored by the 2014 Board of the Southern Regional Health Authority (SRHA) and proceeds from the book, Clinical Dialogues in Hospital Medicine by author Dr Gabriel Ukala, who is also a consultant physician and Head of Internal Medicine at MRH.
Speaking at the opening of the Teaching Room on Friday, Regional Director of SRHA, Michael Bent noted that SRHA fully supports the initiative, which will enhance the delivery of health care.
He added that he was confident the use of the room will contribute to sharpening the skills of the Internal Medicine team.
The book, Clinical Dialogues in Hospital Medicine is based on Dr Ukala's clinical experiences in Jamaica and documents classical medical ward proceedings. It is a clinical companion which provides clear, simple and systematic approaches to difficult medical topics.
