ABSTRACT

Nineteen women trained in the technique of pelvic examination taught both the technical and interpersonal aspects of the procedure to sophomore medical students in a physical diagnosis course. Working in teams of two, the women functioned as the primary instructors. A medical professional served as resource person only. The training and teaching programs are described. Because of the success of both, a similar learning experience for third-year medical students entering the obstetric/gynecology clerkship and for obstetric/gynecology residents has been initiated.
