INTRODUCTION: The curriculum for medical graduates proposed by the MCI, has undergone significant changes. The new curriculum identifies essential skills, describes methods and contexts of teaching, and recognizes standardized measurement of competencies1. It focuses on learning critical competencies needed for success in clinical practice and provides standards and a framework for measuring performance2. It allows for self, objective, and multisource assessments with mandates to improve the quality of health care and enhance patient safety 3,4
OBJECTIVE: To develop a cost-effective upper limb mannequin for training students in the skill of parental injection techniques to be assessed using objective structured practical examination (OSPE).
MATERIALS AND METHODS: Cost effective upper limb was prepared for parenteral drug administration. Each student was able to practice individually. A study questionnaire was given covering aspects of Perception and feedback of the students regarding the mannequins.
RESULTS: A Huge percentage (96.87%) of students concurred that simulation is a useful learning method. A large percentage of students agreed that it made the topic interesting and provided a semi-realistic experience.  Feedback obtained showed that over half of the students agreed that the mannequins were good.   
CONCLUSION: The simulation technique provided self-learning of a variety of skills with confidence in a safe and controlled environment without fear of harming patients. Students were able to enhance clinical competence by repeatedly doing the procedure & correcting their mistakes.

Aim: To evaluate and compare the pain perception by the pediatric patients, while experiencing computerized injection device computerized syringe and the conventional injection technique during dental clinical procedures
Methodology: Forty children aged 10‑14 years requiring local anaesthesia on two sides of the dental arch were included in the study. The patients served as their own control, and on the appointed day through computerized injection technique local anesthesia was injected and on the second day, anesthesia was achieved with the help of traditional method. Visual analogue scale (VAS) and faces pain rating scale (FRS) were used to evaluate pain perception of pediatric patients. Along with this, various other physiological parameters were also taken into consideration.
Results: Paired t‑test discovered a statistically significant variance in the pain acuity in pediatric patients using VAS and FRS scales to compare amid computerized and conventional technique. No statistically significant difference was observed when physiological parameters (heart rate, blood pressure) were compared at various intervals
between the computerized and the conventional technique
Conclusion: Computerized controlled injection technique provides less painful injections when compared to the conventional injection technique.
