How to Apply to be a Standardized Patient

We generally hire actors once a year based upon program needs; however, we keep an active file of potential actors. You are welcome to apply at any point by sending your CV and headshot (or current photo) to SP Program Manager Barbara Hildebrand (

New Guidelines for SP Program Request Form

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, we need to plan differently for standardized patient requests in the upcoming 2020/2021 academic year.

For SP requests between July 1, 2020 - June 30, 2021

The SP Program will review these requests and allocate resources whenever possible.

Requests will be addressed by July 15th to allow your program/department time to make accommodations if we are unable to meet your needs.

* If a program submits after 6/15/20, the request will be considered, but only after all other commitments have been fulfilled.

We appreciate your understanding of this change in policy and support of our SP Program. It is our intention to assist as many programs/departments as possible within the limitations of our resources.
