GRENNO TROITINO, Analia et al. Training of postgraduate doctors in gynecology using simulators. Horiz. Med. [online]. 2014, vol.14, n.3, pp.6-11. ISSN 1727-558X.

Objective: To present the first experience with simulation for Ob/Gyn Residents in our medical community, in Montevideo School of Medicine, University of the Republic (UdeLaR). Material and Methods: The educational program was divided into 4 modules: I- Patient safety and medical humanism, II-Contraception, III- Assisted birth and episiotomy suturing and IV- Obstetric emergencies. Theoretical expositions, practical experiences with inert simulators of higher and lower complexity and simulation of clinical situations were performed.The students carried out instances of auto evaluation, peer evaluation, and collaborative learning. Also took pre- and post- tests to assess knowledge. Results: The Residents agreed in the usefulness of this practice, and highlighted the advantages simulators provide: a riskfree learning environment, an opportunity for exercising team work and updating clinical guidelines in critical conditions. Conclusion: This was a very favorable development in our medical education department, since it provided a learning and objective evaluating methodology, as well as an environment that allowed students to develop skills and abilities, and to approach patients with more professionalism and confidence.
