Deeply impacted fetal head at caesarean section at full dilation is a rare obstetric emergency, and exposure for trainees can be limited. We aimed to pilot and evaluate a hospital‐based training program incorporating mastery learning principles for trainees performing caesarean section at full dilation. We demonstrated improvements in knowledge, skills and self‐confidence, and feel that this educational package shows promise as an important component of obstetric training, and warrants further exploration in the future.
