Standardized Patient Program

A Standardized Patient is someone who has been trained to portray, in a consistent, standardized manner, a patient in a complex medical scenario. The SP role-plays a clinical situation to help students learn or evaluate clinical skills.

Standardized Patients are people from the community who have indicated an interest in helping to shape future medical professionals.

An SP must be able to:

  • - the ability to realistically role play a variety of patient "cases"
    - Observe the medical student's behavior
    - the motivation to help learners develop interviewing techniques and interpersonal skills
    - Provide feedback to the student

Our SPs are a supportive group who enjoy what they do because they know it’s important to both medical professionals and patients. If you have an interest in becoming a Standardized Patient, please email our SP Program coordinator, Kelli Strom
