Breast and Pelvic Exams:

Gynecologic Teaching Associates (GTAs) are women who utilize their bodies as teaching tools in the instruction of well woman breast and pelvic exam techniques. Sessions take place in your facility or other available space. One GTA session consists of a 3 or 4:1 student to instructor ratio and runs about 1 hour & 45 minutes to two hours.  During this time comprehensive clinical breast and pelvic exam techniques are taught in a step by step process that provides immediate feedback to your learners.  Our patient empowerment model provides instruction in patient communication, relaxation techniques, patient education, and transition techniques. CPR’s independent teaching modality facilitates a relaxed, judgment free zone that empowers the learners to ask questions they may hesitate to ask otherwise. Our GTAs are fastidiously trained in invasive clinical exam technique, have extensive knowledge of their own anatomy and are experts in the methodology of using their bodies as teaching tools.  We are one of the few programs in the country who safely teach multiple sessions in a single day. 

For questions or to sign up for a training session, please contact Isle Polonko, Owner and Director of Clinical Practice Resources for Training and Education at 973-602-7783 or islecprte@gmail.com.
