Standardized Patients

Becoming a Standardized Patient

Standardized or Simulated Patients (SPs) are laypersons trained to portray a variety of patient scenarios for the instruction and assessment of clinical skills of medical students, residents, fellows, and other diverse professionals.

SPs receive rigorous training to learn to portray scenarios realistically and consistently. Additionally, SPs are extensively trained to score student performance on communication and physical exam maneuvers.
