Completion of the new study building in 2011 has ensured modern teaching and learning conditions as well as high level technological equipment for all the curricula. Rooms in the study building such as lecture and seminar rooms, skills labs, staff rooms, a library and an information centre facilitate teaching, learning and research activities, independent learning of students and the use of different study methods. Lecture and seminar rooms are equipped with modern technical devices such as computers, video projectors, document cameras and smart boards. In order to achieve the learning outcomes most efficiently, teachers take into account the IT possibilities when planning lectures and seminars.
There are skills labs that simulate the patient wards in the hospital environment, including numerous teaching/learning aids in the forms of phantoms, medical and hospital equipment etc., facilitating student adaptation to the working environment. Skills labs are used on all curricula to conduct different types of simulation training sessions.
Our library is well stocked with sufficient copies of modern teaching/learning and research literature to meet the needs of all the curricula. The library is accessible for everybody to use on the site. In addition to books and periodicals, the library gives access to databases such as CINAHL (EBSCO) and PubMed
