Standardized patients (SP) are healthy people who are trained to
portray actual patient cases so realistically that even experienced
physicians cannot detect them. SPs learn the history, physical exam and
affect of the patient. Medical students, dental students and other

they would with real patients to learn to take a medical history,
perform a physical exam, counsel the patient and negotiate treatment
plans. Standardized patients not only play the role of the patient but

Pay is $15 for training and $10/hour for SP encounters.
Times and dates vary with course requirements.
SPs may be trained for more than one SP case allowing more work for
those interested in additional hours.
