    A standardized patient (SP) is defined as, “A person trained from a standardized case to present a social and emotional history, as well as specific findings on physical examination with such realism that even an experienced clinician can rarely detect the simulation. They are people from the community who perform four roles: to portray a patient case, document learner performance, provide feedback on clinical and interpersonal skills and represent patient satisfaction.”

    Standardized Patients (SPs) instruct and assess health providers at multiple levels (undergraduate, post graduate, and practicing providers) in clinical and communication skills, physical examination techniques and procedural skills. SPs may also work with non-medical professionals to instruct and assess communication skills. In addition to teaching and assessment, SPs will provide detailed feedback on learner performance and perform various duties as assigned.
