Us College 'forced' Medical Students To Have Vaginal Examinations

Recommended Posts

http://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/health-and-families/health-news/us-college-forced-medical-students-to-have-vaginal-examinations-10262436.html

Two US medical students were forced to undergo almost weekly vaginal probes in front of students and instructors despite protesting against the procedure, and were threatened with being “blacklisted” from finding jobs at local hospitals if they did not comply, it has been alleged.

The students from Valencia College in Orlando, Florida, are suing the university for violating their rights, alleging they had been told the sonograms performed by fellow students would be voluntary, though in practice this was not the case.

The procedure involved a transvaginal ultrasound probe in which a technician inserts a lubricated probe to detect problems with fertility or other issues, according to the lawsuit, which describes the probe as large and not recommended for women who have not had sexual intercourse.

The students claim they submitted under duress to the probes, which at times required their bodies to be sexually stimulated by other students to facilitate insertion, experiencing “discomfort and embarrassment each time they had to endure this forced probing of their sexual organs,” their case states.

When the students protested against the procedure, they were allegedly told by the clinical and laboratory co-ordinator that they could find a different school, their grades would be reduced and that they would be blacklisted from local hospital jobs.

Does this sound likely? How do they train people in the UK in this area, is it on consenting patients or do they have to practice first on volunteers?

I have never heard of students being asked to perform intimate examinations on each other.

Typically, the examination will have been practiced several times on a model, so that the basic concept is reasonably clear.

I've only ever heard or seen it done on consenting patients where the patient needs such an examination as part of treatment. In most cases, the patient is asked for written consent specifically for a student to perform the examination prior to a consultant doing so.

What do you mean by model - a plastic vagina or a real living female model hired in for the job?

I bet that, in the UK, the model is Katie Price.

all doctors are rapists od course.

The suit claims college staff told the students “they could find another school if they did not wish to be probed” and that staff made suggestive comments to students as they were probed.

is this really likely....if its true, then the staff should be barred from professional practice.

And what probe requires sexual stimulation in order to be inserted...lubes would be applied where necessary.

Im calling serious sexual assault, in which case the Police should be involved, or BS. I have a feeling that at the bottom of this will be a religious cause.

Is this going to turn out the college had rented out some of it's gyno facilities to the adult film industry for some extra cash?

Similar confusion occurred when I was a porn film actor and because things were slow I did some part time plumbing work.
