Simulations Working Group Toolkit

Welcome to the ACOG Simulations Working Group Toolkit page. Below are surgical simulation scenarios for Ob-Gyns to conduct their own simulation drills. This content has been formally reviewed by the ACOG Simulations Working Group and has been confirmed to be of effective educational value.

If you have content you would like to include in this toolkit, please send your submissions to Anne Arnold (Aarnold@acog.org) and it will be reviewed by the ACOG Simulations Working Group.
