Medical Students Learning Pelvic Exams with Simulators?

Medical Students Learning Pelvic Exams with Simulators?

This blog article touches on the “trend in medical schools to use ‘simulators’ and mannequins, rather than model patients, to teach students.” Do you think that this is a disservice to medical students? Pelvic Guru says YES! Did you know that in Pelvic Physical Therapy specialized courses, each therapist has to practice all internal and external pelvic tests and treatments on each other (or they have to bring another person to model)?

        you are very welcome. Love your blog. I will be launching our new website, which will feature good articles and links, If you are interested in joining please feel free to let me know. I am on twitter under incostress and the ‘old’ website is http://www.incostress.com but is a very bad design, hence me making a new one
