TA 3210 - Training of Standardized Patient

Standardized Patient (SP) programs utilize standardized patients (SPs) to provide a standardized and repeatable interactive experiene for testing students in health care programs. SPs can be lay persons, and/or real patients trained to take on the role of the patient during a simulated encounter. This course trains students in becoming a standardized patient. Students participating in this course will undergo instruction on how to act in the role of the patient for each case scenario. Training is supplemented with written material, video footage (when possible) of real patients, and facilitated role playing. SPs are then observed by the author of the case scenario to ensure that they present the case scenario realistically and consistently, and are able to accurately respond to questions that may be posed by the examinee.
