Introduction to the Neonatal Circumcision Procedure (Gomco Technique) - Session Overview

Incoming family medicine interns (PGY1s) and interns from other programs (family medicine, pediatrics, and obstetrics/OB) will learn the technical skills necessary to perform a neonatal circumcision procedure. They will do this via a series of pre-reading, video tutorial, and hands-on experience (“see one, do one, teach one”). It will also involve a summative simulation on a newborn model during which the individual resident’s competency is formally evaluated.

Session Length: 180 minutes

Prerequisite(s): Pre-reading of 2 AAFP articles

Learning Objectives

  • To review the technical steps of the neonatal circumcision (Gomco technique) procedure by viewing the instructional video.

  • To develop the practical skillset required to perform a neonatal circumcision from memory (without prompting) by practicing on a newborn model.

  • To perform the circumcision procedure in a simulated environment.
