e11096 Background: The purpose of this study was to identify and track sources of medical student anxiety towards learning the clinical female breast examination (CBE). METHODS A previously validated survey was used to assess medical student anxiety towards learning the CBE. The survey was administered over three academic school years to first year-M1(More)
As part of our simulation-based curriculum design process, we require faculty instructors to formally examine and test the simulators prior to instructional use. This requirement is invaluable when using commercially available, mannequin-based simulations. Our study shows that, when teaching a clinical examination using simulation, the clinical presentation(More)
Verschuren and Hartog's six-stage methodology for design-oriented research is a process that is ideally suited to the development of artifacts that meet a desired outcome. We discuss the methodology and its relevance to simulation development for establishing a wide variety of realistic clinical breast examination models that can be used for assessment.
In recent years, simulation training has emerged as an innovative method for decreasing error and teaching complex procedures. Simulation has also been a valuable tool for evaluating investigatory and analytic thinking. By adding a specific, clinically oriented modification to a commercially available simulator, we were able to elicit first-year emergency(More)
In prior studies, mannequin-based simulation training has been used to help decrease student anxiety toward intimate clinical examinations. Using time away as an independent variable, the aim of this study was to assess decay of clinical confidence for four procedural tasks that vary in procedural complexity. Clinical confidence with intimate examinations,(More)
We have developed a way to measure performance during a camera-guided rigid bronchoscopy using manikin-based simulation. In an effort to measure contact pressures within the airway during a rigid bronchoscopy, we instrumented pressure sensors in a commercially available bronchoscopy task trainer. Participants were divided into two groups based on(More)
