This study introduces a novel way to implement simulation in medical education. We investigated the feasibility of integrating a newly developed breast examination simulator into a breast exam technique lecture while also collecting detailed data on medical students’ breast exam skills. Results indicate that it is feasible to integrate simulation technology into the classroom environment and collect detailed performance data that can be analyzed and used for skills assessment.
