Trying to get an idea if any schools are allowing their students to practice live IV on each other? We did in my courses as an EMS provider before we were allowed to practice on patients, however our COM is resistant to letting us try live IVs after practicing on the IV trainer arms (nothing like reality). Our COM is saying NO other med school is doing this, care to weigh in?

On another note, how is everyones clinical skills curriculum laid out?

I think my school used to let the students practice on each other in the past, but we just had the IV trainer arm. It was less than ideal, but I wouldn't sweat it. It's not like anyone does "live" suture training on each other before rotations, but we all end up learning at least the basics on-the-job on real patients.
