How was your last pelvic exam?

At Your Cervix exposes the hidden practice of medical students learning to perform pelvic exams on anesthetized patients without consent. Yet an ethical and effective training method has existed for 40 years, in which the “patient” herself is the teacher.

End the horror stories

At Your Cervix breaks the silence around the unethical methods used by medical and nursing schools to teach students how to perform pelvic exams; the most egregious being on unconsenting, anaesthetized women. At the same time, the film highlights the Gynecological Teaching Associate (GTA) Program in New York City. Fuelled by the spirit of women’s health activism, the GTA program began over 40 years ago and it has been shown to be the most effective way to teach exams and is also the most ethical and empowering to patients.
