Casting call for standardized patients
The Yale School of Medicine (YSM) Standardized Patient Program invites alumni, their families and other interested members of the medical school community to participate as standardized patients in clinical teaching programs for medical students. Standardized patients simulate real patients as they are interviewed and examined by medical students who are observed and supervised by physicians. Scripts for patient role playing and ample training will be provided. One- to two-hour teaching sessions are held on campus on certain weekdays. It is recommended that standardized patients participate in at least 10 sessions per year. A stipend is provided to cover such costs as parking and travel. If you are interested in contributing to the YSM educational program as a standardized patient, please contact the director, Frederick Haeseler, M.D., FW ’76, associate clinical professor, at email@example.com.
