The objectives of the ultrasound guided thyroid ultrasound and biopsy simulation session.
1. Students should be able to appreciate the anatomy of the thyroid gland
2. Understand the critical anatomic landmarks required to complete a successful ultrasound-guided biopsy of a thyroid nodule.
3. Competencies acquired during this session will be pivotal in the performance of fine needle biopsies of thyroid nodules but other nodules in extra-thyroidal sites.
