Physical exams can include focused exams such as an eye exam or a complete head to toe physical. It depends on the learning objectives of the student that our faculty has designed. More intimate exams, such as breast or genital exams, are only practiced on advanced level SPs that specifically sign up for our Genitourinary Teaching Associate (GTA) program or Male Urogenital Teaching Associate (MUTA) program. Overall, it is important that all SPs be comfortable with their own body and having a student inspect or examine them. You will need to be comfortable wearing a patient gown with appropriate undergarments and being videotaped for faculty review purposes. Please note that SP/student encounters are simulated in a controlled environment with supervision of the College of Medicine (COM) staff.
