Inter-professional OSCE Based Simulation Collaboration to Teach Obstetrics & Gynecology to Second Year Medical Students and Nursing Students

Purpose: To describe an inter-professional workshop (IPE) utilizing simulation, OSCE and flipped classroom to introduce 2nd year medical and nursing students to OBGYN concepts 

Background: IPE has been shown to facilitate improved patient-centered care

Methods: In November 2017; students studied an online fetal heart rate (FHR) lecture; at workshop worked in groups on clinical FHR scenarios, and presented findings for group learning and discussions. Students rotated through three stations each for 45 minutes as follows: 1) MFM faculty taught students on cervical dilation using “blinded” and “open” cervical models. Students had hands-on with obstetrical procedures such as B-Lynch Suture. 2) Students performed a simulated vaginal delivery supervised by MFM fellow; nursing students resuscitated newborn and gave SBAR report to medical students. 3) MFM fellow and gynecologist faculty taught students on contraception methods while a technician taught students IUD insertion. Students self-assessed and were assessed by faculty using OSCE; knowledge quizzes were completed for contraception and cervical examination accuracy. 

Results: The program trained 116 (73%) medical and 51(22%) nursing students. There were no significant differences between medical students and nursing students scores which were respectively: IUD insertion self-assessment = 8.84 vs. 8.43; IUD insertion faculty-assessment= 9 vs. 8; cervical examination accuracy = 13.1 vs. 12.7;  contraception   quiz = 9.1 vs. 9.3. Medical students birth simulation self-assessment vs. faculty-assessment scores were 8.6 vs. 8.9, p <0.001.

Discussions: Medical and nursing students learned OBGYN skills equally, nursing students had the opportunity to teach medical students.  Medical students were more critical of their learning than faculty.
