The NC Women’s Hospital education team purchased a Gaumard Scientific “Victoria” tetherless obstetric simulator at the end of 2014. The mannequin was delivered, set-up, and the staff trained in “her” operations.
The first use of this amazing resource occurred on April 8th of 2015. The tweets below documented this first use of “Victoria” in the state of North Carolina. The gallery below made up of tweets by Associate Director of Simulation for the UNC School of Medicine and Clinical Instructor of Pediatrics Mr. Gene Hobbs.

The team at NC Women’s Hospital is looking to rename the simulator. What do you think we should call her?
