The Duke Ob/Gyn Residency Program’s simulation curriculum is designed to hone residents’ practical skills and foster a mindset for effective teamwork. The curriculum utilizes a blend of tabletop simulations and hands-on task training in a lab room/simulated environment to ensure a well-rounded learning experience.
The curriculum is based on the following fundamental principles:
- Basic assumptions: Every learner has a unique set of experiences, skills and knowledge; we respect and build upon these differences to create a well-rounded learning experience.
- Psychological safety: We provide an environment where learners can feel safe to take risks, make mistakes and openly express their thoughts and ideas.
- Think out loud, ask for help, time out as needed: Active participation and open communication is encouraged. Residents think out loud, ask for help when needed and call for a "time out" if the situation requires it.
- Formative learning (not graded): The focus is on formative learning, which means residents participate to learn and grow, not to be graded.
- Debriefing: Each simulation session is followed by a comprehensive debriefing.
