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 for this position, but please check back periodically for future opportunities.
