The role of simulation training for OB-GYNS
from Contemporary OB/GYN
Simulation has become much more popular. It’s a very popular subject because of the fact that within our field there is not a good way of being assured that surgeons are maintaining their skills. So, unlike pilots who have to, on a yearly basis, go through simulation training to make sure they’re maintaining their skills, once your OB-GYN has graduated from residency and gotten appointed to a hospital, there really isn’t a way to make sure that they maintain their skills over their career. We are in a field where there are many gynecologists, who maybe do on average a dozen surgeries a year, which to many wouldn’t be enough to actually maintain their skills.
