Standardized Patient Education and Assessment Program

Wake Forest School of Medicine was an early leader in developing and implementing the use of Standardized Patients as part of its medical curriculum. The use of Standardized Patient provides direct observation for education and assessment of doctor-patient interactions. Further, the interactions allow learners to practice collecting patient histories and conducting physical examinations, as well as managing patients in outpatient and inpatient settings.

Standardized Patients actors skilled in portraying live patient simulation in a variety of patient settings generally equipped for direct observation, wireless communication and video recording.

The Center for Experiential and Applied Learning offers standardized patient educational and assessment opportunities to a variety of events to enhance and evaluate patient care interactions. The center also has the capability to utilize standardized patients within the clinical workplace for immersive learning projects.
