A basic Skill Laboratory was set up at the inception of the college in the Department of Forensic Medicine and the available equipment was used by various departments. In 2019 - 2020, the Skill Laboratory has been upgraded and relocated under the Department of Anaesthesiology & Critical Care in a purpose designed 2400 square feet area to optimally use the lifesaving skills and expertise. In addition to commercially available manikins (more of them under procurement), the faculty has made various improvised devices to facilitate learning process. A well-appointed Seminar Room is part of the air-conditioned facility.

Utilisation of the Laboratory by various departments is by booking slots as required, through the Departmental Secretary of Department of Anaesthesiology & Critical Care.
