Standardized Patient Employment

Looking for a few good standardized patientsStandardized Patients

The standardized patient (SP) is a person who has been carefully coached to simulate an actual patient interaction so accurately that the simulation cannot be detected by a skilled health care professional. In performing the simulation, the SP presents a health history, body language, physical findings, and emotional, cultural and personality characteristics.

The experience contributes to the education of learners in multiple health fields and increases the knowledge of medical professionals. Sessions occur periodically throughout the year (flexible schedules are helpful).

If you are dependable, have a good memory, committed to confidentiality, and have the ability to think on your feet, this might be for you! We are looking for men and women, ages 18-75. A stipend is provided.
