"With this simulator training tool, we can conduct not only normal deliveries, but also complicated deliveries such as breech births, Caesarean deliveries," Professor Jung Eui told Reuters Television. "Students can practice in a very realistic situation with this mannequin."

OB is gross!

In reply to: Robot simulator for med-students...

lol, i suppose this could provide a cleaner alternative to the real thing.

Speaking of, here in Albany, OB/Gyn is 6wks and you get to see a TON of deliveries, simple ones and the more complicated, as well as both natural deliveries and C-sections. During the six weeks I got to catch a few babes myself, and assisted on over a dozen surgical deliveries.

So you definately get enough exposure as a med student (too much if you ask me, lol), but these robot humans are always touted as great teaching tools, and could probably be used to teach about the REALLY rare cases. As such, I think this would be an even more valuable tool for residents (as they will have to deal with these kind of things in their careers...) or the squeamish.

ty for the link.
