Ultrasoundable task-trainers that simulate the tactile feel of human tissue will allow for the repeated practice of invasive procedures without harming the human models. The instructors will demonstrate the procedure and will supervise the learners’ performance of the procedures in small groups. Formative evaluation in the form of immediate feedback provided by the instructor will help the learners to monitor their progress and guide their learning.
