The Papaya Workshop can be carried out in a one-hour session with one trained facilitator. The session can be extended to 90 minutes to allow for more in-depth discussion of anatomy and practice of the techniques. The workshop can be taught to groups as large as 30 learners, but if the group is larger than 10, consider recruiting an assistant to help to ensure that learners receive individual instruction. The objectives of this workshop can vary based on the level of experience of the audience and the clinical points the facilitator chooses to emphasize based on the clinical environment.

Jody Steinauer, MD, MAS, discusses the origins, uses, and benefits of the papaya workshop. Dr. Steinauer is a Professor in the Department of Ob-Gyn & Reproductive Sciences at University of California, San Francisco.
