    Lecture Theatres

    The Island Medical Program’s two 75 seat lecture theatres incorporate high-definition technology enabling crystal clear images over a dedicated fiber optic network. With high-definition cameras and projectors, students get a great view of presentations and anatomical specimens being presented from UBC, UNBC, SMP or locally at IMP in clear 720p resolution. The Distributed Medical Program is an industry leader in broadcasting HD academic sessions between campuses. We are constantly innovating and dedicated to making a student’s learning experience unparalleled.

    Interaction between students and instructors is an important part of the educational experience. Student seats have push-to-talk microphones (approximately 1 microphone for every 2 students) that allow personal interaction during question and answer sessions. Once the student engages the microphone, the lecture theatre HD camera will center and focus in on the student asking the question. The distant instructor and student can then have a one-on-one interaction, and it’s all done in impressive high-definition.

    The lecture theatres are also equipped with Blu-ray players, hi-resolution document cameras, wireless microphone technology, and a dedicated lectern PC for local and distributed curriculum sessions. Instructors can also bring in their own laptop or MacBook to do distributed or local presentations and run it seamlessly through our inter-campus network.


    Student LabIsland Medical Program Multipurpose Labs (MPLs).

    The Island Medical Program’s Multi Purpose Lab and lecture theatres incorporate the same high-definition technology for curricular classes. In addition to the HD lecture format, students can view histology specimens on their own workstation monitor with ImageScope technology. Virtual microscopes (ImageScope) enable high-resolution viewing of histology slides on student monitors. This allows for collaborative analysis of lab images and easy access to hundreds of high-resolution histology slides. The MPL is also a wet lab where students can practice suturing techniques or examine anatomical specimens. We have a fantastic open lab environment with large windows overlooking the UVic grounds. Students are often seen studying in the MPL when not in classes, showing what a great learning environment it is.
