Medical Education Facilitator

The Carle Illinois College of Medicine is seeking an exceptional individual to serve as a Medical Education Facilitator. The Facilitator will guide small groups of medical students in case-driven, problem-based active learning experiences that integrate the basic sciences, engineering concepts, and clinical experiences in the first year and a half of the curriculum. The Facilitator will use active learning methodologies that focus on empowering medical students to take responsibility for their own learning in all aspects of the educational program in conjunction with standards and expectations set by the Carle Illinois College of Medicine Curriculum Committee.

Simulated Patient

The Carle Illinois College of Medicine is seeking individuals from all backgrounds to perform the role of a Simulated Patient in the training and evaluation of medical students. Simulated patients are interviewed and examined (just as you would be by your family doctor) by male and female medical students. Simulated patients may see students on a one-to-one basis, or there may be a group of medical students working with the simulated patient in a controlled teaching session. Simulated patients will be trained to accurately and consistently recreate the history, personality, physical findings, and emotional structure and response pattern of an actual patient. We are not currently accepting applications at this time.
