Simulation Training Program

Sim Education 1

Sim Education 5

Our Simulation program is a comprehensive, hands on curriculum, aimed at teaching residents the fundamentals of Obstetrics and Gynecologic. Our curriculum consists of a four-year rotating schedule of simulation sessions throughout the academic year including both Obstetric simulations and Gynecologic simulations. Our program is constantly evolving in order to ensure that residents have access to a curriculum that will allow them to grow and improve as physicians.

The American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ABOG) now requires that all residents graduating after May 31, 2020 must pass the Fundamentals of Laparoscopic Surgery (FLS) exam. The simulation curriculum includes preparing residents for the surgical skills component of this examination.
