Clinical Sciences Building

The flagship Clinical Sciences Centre, one of the largest and most modern healthcare education centres in Europe has been built on the site of the new University Hospital and combines teaching facilities including a mock operating theatre and ward, research laboratories and a state of the art library to create a leading edge knowledge centre for the NHS in the midlands.

Bryan Stoten, former Chairman of University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust adds: "Patients across the UK are set to benefit from this new multi million pound, state-of-the-art Clinical Sciences Centre because its main role is to train hundreds of NHS healthcare staff as well as being the home for pioneering medical research by Warwick and Leicester Universities." "The Centre is one of a handful of such sites nationwide which train staff using a variety of training scenarios. A mock operating theatre and ward in the Centre also enables doctors, nurses, and allied health professionals to train in a range of skills including moving and handling training, resuscitation techniques, surgical skills training, physiotherapy and more. In short, the Clinical Sciences Centre is a centre of excellence and has a key role in developing new and innovative ways of delivering training, recognising the changing and expanding roles of healthcare professionals, the increasing complexity of care and the requirements of continuing professional development."

Facilities include:
  • 250 seat modern lecture theatre, IT enabled at each seat position
  • Seminar rooms with IT links to main lecture theatre and key locations within the hospital
