Statement on Medical Student Participation in Exam Under Anesthesia

In line with APGO's statement on medical student participation in conducting pelvic exams under anesthesia:

We recommend that learners in the clinical setting, including in the operating room when the patient is under anesthesia, should only perform a pelvic examination for teaching purposes when the pelvic exam is:

• Explicitly consented to;

• Related to the planned procedure;

• Performed by a student who is recognized by the patient as a part of their care team; AND

• Done under direct supervision by the educator.

The students should ask themselves:

Did I meet the patient prior to the procedure?
Did I observe the consent process for exam under anesthesia or personally review it on the consent form (e.g. I looked at the consent form and it included an exam under anesthesia)?
Am I being directly observed for the exam?

If yes to the above, AND they feel comfortable performing an EUA, then perform the exam.

If any are not true, then the student should decline the exam. This is messaged to all educators. As Education Director, Dr. Lager will support the student decision.
