Examination of the Basin (Pelvis) - Students
As for today the ability of students to conduct a gynecological examination in the course of their clerkship in Obstetrics and Gynecology, has decreased. Hence the need arose to create a simulator in order to conduct gynecological examinations and to practice various scenarios in the field. The area of communication between the doctor and the patient has also become a central issue in the doctor`s practice and, therefore, it is important to learn and practice it in medical examinations in general and in Gynecology in particular. This is possible in the framework of a day of training at Simultech.
The training program integrates the improvement of the skills of the physical gynecological examination and those of inter-personal communication between the medical students. (What about communication between doctors and patients? M.K.)
