Standardized Patient Program
Standardized Patients are people who represent the patient community. They can be students, artists, retired teachers, postal workers, law enforcement – members of our community. They are trained to accurately and realistically re-create the history, physical findings, and psychological and emotional responses of the patient in a clinical setting or situation in a safe environment. Standardized patients are also trained to provide feedback on the experience they had to improve interpersonal skills and effective communication.
St. Luke’s Standardized Patient Program represents a diverse ethnic and racial demographic of people ranging in age from 18-80 years old. All requests for standardized patient programs must go through the Simulation Center.
