“Since transvaginal is an invasive exam, we do give students an option; however, we strongly suggest that all students participate in transvaginal labs. Transvaginal is one of the most challenging ultrasounds and clinical sites are less likely to allow students to “practice” on patients if they have not participated in lab practice beforehand. As previously stated, the choice is yours; however I do like to inform all students who do not agree to be a patient for their classmates that they will also not be allowed to participate or practice in transvaginal scanning in our lab. Basically, our reasoning is that if you are not willing to be a patient for your classmates, it is not a fair or equitable situation for your classmates to be a patient for you.”
