Developed by a practicing OB/GYN regularly involved with resident education, Miyazaki Enterprises created the Miya Model with the vast variety of procedures, challenges and restrictions with training OB/GYN residents in mind. Having received 3 NIH grants from the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), we strive to provide a well-researched and validated platform to support OB/GYN vaginal surgery training needs.
Miyazaki Enterprises is devoted to making training safer and more cost effective with the Miya Model.
Our dedication to education and proper training makes healthcare safer for all involved. Miya Model, the premier pelvic surgery training model, creates a realistic surgical experience where surgeons are able to “clamp, cut and tie” pedicles and feel the characteristic “pop” when passing needles through surgical planes similar to a live case without any patient risk. Realistic “feel” of the medical grade silicone organs and parts allow the surgeon to practice various surgical techniques and improve their skill before entering the OR. The Miya Model has a robust surgical training ecosystem for our most common vaginal procedures using curriculum developed by the ACOG Simulation Working Group.
Excellence in simulation training helps solve the training problem of low case numbers and how to train residents to be “OR ready” with a designated skill set before operating on patients.
The Miya Model is used by ACOG, Society of Gynecologic Surgeons (SGS), International Urogynecology Association (IUGA) and American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists (AAGL) for “hands on” surgery courses.
The American Board of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ABOG) has approved a Vaginal hysterectomy and midurethral sling course for Cat I CME and Maintenance of Certification (MOC’s) credits since 2015 exclusively using the Miya Mode — no other simulator has this distinction!
Simulation courses are easy to set up using the Miya Model.
All you need are surgical instruments and suture. Multiple surgical procedures can be performed at one setting to maximize resident and faculty time. Miyazaki Enterprises has full surgical curriculum available from set up, best practices for training and cleanup.
