Khaled MAHMOUD, MD
"Dr Mahmoud’s interest in simulators began in 2013 when he was elected President of the Tunisian Society of Obstetrical Gynecology. His primary objective was to improve continuing medical education by modernizing the pedagogical aspect to make it more didactic and more oriented towards practical improvement. He initially focused on the pelvic trainers for endoscopy and simulators in ultrasound. With the help of his French and German colleagues and the STORZ Company, he organized several training courses before introducing these tools in Tunisia in the training courses at the national and international congresses that he organized. Due to his involvement in medically assisted reproductive activities, he was abreast with technological developments in teaching tools and the advent of simulators for the learning of practical gestures concerning the oocyte collection and the transfer of embryos in the uterine cavity. As an active member in scholarly, national and international societies, he has participated in the implementation of post-graduate training programs and the introduction of these new learning tools, such as simulators. He has been part of the team of trainers in several training sessions organized since 2013 by several learned societies, such as the Tunisian Society of Obstetrical Gynecology, The Mediterranean Society of Reproductive Medicine, the Société Internationale de Fécondation In Vitro et Gyn-Monaco in several countries including France and the USA. He was also engaged as a trainer in the ‘Excellence Academy’ educational program in Africa, France and Thailand, organized by the MERCK laboratory, world leaders in infertility treatments.
