Position Summary

Standardized Patients (SP) are trained to present a patient history and sometimes physical symptoms as they portray real patient cases in learning or testing situations and provide feedback to learners. The role of an SP is to behave as real patients might in a given situation, so our students can practice before seeing real patients in an office or hospital setting. Sample cases are depressions, lower back pain, joint pain, headache, chest pain, menopause symptoms, hypertension, urinary tract infection, partner violence and panic attack. Outside preparation is required to review, learn, and memorize specific case material so a case scenario is portrayed in a consistent, accurate, reliable and professional manner.
