Introduction: Few studies have evaluated the impact of inter-professional education or simulation based programs in obstetric care; fewer have investigated inter-professional simulation. A study showed that inter-professional-simulation programs may be beneficial in undergraduate medical education, but it is unclear whether such training impacts the transition from undergraduate to graduate medical education, and if there is knowledge retention from simulations.

Methods: We developed a paging simulation, as part of our Ob/Gyn Bootcamp, for medical (n=6) and midwifery (n=5) students to assess the ACGME milestones and core competencies for inter-professional collaborative practice. Participants completed pre- and post-surveys using Likert scales to self-report changes in attitudes towards inter-professional collaboration and readiness for residency, and medical students again performed this survey 3 months into residency.

Results: Medical students felt more confident differentiating between emergent and non-emergent situations, more able to assess patients over the phone, more comfortable working with midwives, and reported increased knowledge of Ob/Gyn after the simulation (p
