Application for Standardized Patient Program
The Pennsylvania State University School of Medicine employs simulated patients in the training and evaluation of medical students, residents and other professionals. A Simulated/Standardized Patient is a person who has been coached to accurately recreate the history, personality, physical findings, and emotional structure and response pattern of an actual patient isolated at a particular point in time.
Simulated patients are interviewed and examined (just as you would be by your family doctor) by male and female medical students. In the patient role, simulators may be several (1 to 12) students on a one-to-one basis during an evaluation session or there may be a group of students (4 to 7) working with you in a controlled teaching session.
If you think you may be interested in being a simulated patient for Pennsylvania State University School of Medicine, please complete the following questionnaire on our secure sever.
