No methodology has been proven to work better for training invasive exam clinical skills techniques than the GTA/MUTA model of learning.  Data from studies as far back as 1977 to those published in the past few years, consistently indicate the benefits of GTA training.  When a GTA or MUTA is both the instructor & patient, it is shown to:

  • Provide exceptional training in clinical exam technique
  • Improve competency
  • Reduce student anxiety
  • Increase test scores
  • Improve patient communication
  • Improve student ability to identify pathology by providing access to well-patient anatomy. 

Why Clinical Practice Resources?  

CPR for Training & Education is a pioneering leader in the field of GTA & MUTA services. Ms. Polonko’s innovative pursuits in the field are the result of a creative mind and decades of GTA programmatic experience.  Our team has worked internationally with universities, Veterans Association centers, Sexual Assault Forensic programs, midwifery programs, private practices and radiology departments. We developed the first and only MUTA Train the Trainer curriculum; an interactive toolkit designed to create outstanding GTA and MUTA trainers for your GTA/MUTA program. Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner & Sexual Assault Forensic Examiner programs around the country are changing how forensic evidence collection training is executed because of our unprecedented work in the field. Our concentration on patient empowerment & education within comprehensive well-patient care has inspired research, training, and curriculum-building in a variety of related fields.  CPR offers lifestyle sensitivity training, LGBTQIA lectures & curriculum, Sexual Assault Forensic Evidence collection training, SANE &SAFE training, GTA & MUTA certification, and remedial/standardization training.  Simply put, we are the best at what we do.



Becoming a GTA has been one of the greatest honors of my life – I know my work with medical professionals impacts countless patients. Being trained to do this work by Isle was everything you’d want it to be – educational, fun, comfortable and empowering. Isle pours her whole heart into it.
