The cervical smear is a test used to detect pre-cancerous and cancerous changes in the uterine cervix. This module teaches you how to prepare for and assist with a cervical smear. Including both Learn and Test modes, the online simulator offers two clinical scenarios that test your ability to perform this type of routine examination. Practice the steps of the procedures online as often as you want, until you feel confident.

If you are not a medical student or physician, you may prefer the other version of this module, which includes all the procedural information needed by professionals in other roles: /shop/clinical/medical-assisting/general-procedures/assist-with-pap-smear-and-breast-examination/

You’ll learn

  • to visualize the anatomy of the female internal genitalia and the breast, with our anatomical illustrations and 3D model
  • the correct specimen preparation and labeling for a cervical smear test
  • to practice and perfect your skills in how to prepare for, and assist with, a cervical smear, including patient positioning, correct handling of instruments, and the appropriate transfer and fixing techniques for specimen samples for both slide-and liquid-based tests
  • much more (see Content Details for more specific information)

No special hardware or other equipment is required, other than a computer mouse for use in the simulations. Each of the SIMTICS modules covers one specific procedure or topic in detail. Each module contains:

  • an online simulation (available in Learn and Test modes)
  • descriptive text, which explains exactly how to perform that particular procedure including key terms and hyperlinks to references
  • 2D images and a 3D model of applied anatomy for that particular topic
  • a step by step video demonstration by an expert
  • a quiz
  • a personal logbook that keeps track of all the modules the learner has studied and how long
