Pelvic ultrasound simulation training using high-fidelity mannequins can provide a safe and controlled learning environment to foster the ultrasound education of medical students, residents and faculty. The instruction can be tailored to the specific needs of the learners. Topics for instruction range from teaching basic anatomy and ultrasound scanning techniques to common and advanced obstetrics and gynecology disease presentations and pathological processes. Simulation can closely approximate patient encounters using case based scenarios which will aid in developing knowledge and skills that can be transferred to the clinical environment. The goal of simulation is to help the learners to become more confident and competent to care for their patients.
