Supervised clinical work is perhaps the most valuable component of postgraduate training and has a long-term impact. Senior clinicians not only take the responsibility of teaching and supervising junior doctors but also most of them take the consequences of any clinical failures or mistakes associated with the training. Despite the introduction of simulators and computer-assisted learning, practice on real patients is still required to learn many skills in obstetrics and gynaecology. Training must be safe, because trainees or trainers must not put our patients at risk as part of the process of learning to heal others. Ultrasound can be used to demonstrate and guide several procedures that have been performed 'blindly' in the past. This technology can reduce the risks associated with training and supervision of junior doctors.
