Abstract

Focused military curricula and readiness training are often inadequate for military resident physicians. We developed a standardized gynecologic military-unique patient scenario and examination to assess obstetrics and gynecology residents' clinical and operational problem-solving abilities. Integration of military-unique gynecologic standardized patients, clinical scenarios, and objective structured clinical examinations into obstetrics and gynecology curricula is a novel approach for realistic medical readiness training for resident physicians. This tool can become a cornerstone in the ongoing development of needed military-unique curricula.
