We are currently recruiting for Standardized Patient (SP) positions at the Sam Houston State University College of Osteopathic Medicine. This is a wonderful opportunity for interesting and rewarding part time work and to join our growing medical school.
A Standardized Patient (SP) is a person who is carefully trained to accurately and realistically portray the part of a fictional patient by simulating a specific history, personality, physical findings and emotional state of the patient. SP encounters are designed to simulate a fictional patients’ visit to the doctor’s office or emergency room. SPs allow students to practice communication, history-taking and basic clinical skills in a supportive and safe environment before students work on actual patients. SPs are carefully trained to provide feedback to students which helps them improve their skills.
We are looking for people who are looking for part time work and who are:
• Interested in helping in the education and training of future physicians
• Capable of memorizing information and portraying the part of a patient, including learning and displaying the mock patients’ history and symptoms
• Enthusiastic about joining a dynamic Clinical Skills team
