Clinical Interpersonal Skills (CIPS) Course

– Year 2, 4 and 5 CIPS sessions

About this course

The practice of medicine is both a science and an art. Because of rapid advances in the science of medicine and the never-ending emergence of new technologies the art of medicine has been marginalized. Medical schools and senior doctors assume that medical students and young doctors will somehow develop an effective “bedside manner” in the course of their training. To help medical students develop a modicum of skills, this course will focus on some generic skills which will need to be practised and built up during the developmental process of each doctor’s professional life. These selected skills are considered necessary for the formation of relationships, the gathering and giving of information to colleagues, patients and families in the promotion of physical, emotional and social well-being of patients and their families.

The aim of the Clinical Interpersonal Skills (CIPS) Course is to help medical students develop some generic skills necessary for the formation of professional relations, the gathering and giving of information to patients, their families, and colleagues, and in the promotion of physical, emotional and social well-being of patients and their families.
