The cardiac education centre is a purpose built area with state-of-the-art learning facilities. The centre has a 63 seat lecture theatre with the ability to link in to cameras within the cardiac theatre for teaching purposes. A clinical skills “wet lab” with video camera facilities is also available and can be used for dissection.
The centre also has a large teaching room which can be divided into two smaller rooms, each with audio visual equipment and a smaller seminar room with plasma screen. There is a library and reading area for quiet out-of-hours study which also doubles up as an information room for mandatory training sessions and e-learning facilitates. All rooms are networked to the Trusts intranet.
