University of California San Francisco Give to UCSF

Led by: Brandon Mears, MFA

This workshop introduces the use of standardized patients in health professions education. Workshop facilitators provide an overview of the use of standardized patients including the theory and rationale for their use and provide examples of how SPs are being used for both formative (teaching) and summative (assessment) exercises. Workshop faculty will also cover alternative uses of standardized patients including hybrid simulations and virtual standardized patient exercises. Participants will learn the process of SP case development and identify the key elements of a standardized patient case. Participants will have the opportunity to develop an outline for a standardized patient case and receive feedback from their peers.

At the end of the workshop participants will be able to:

Discuss the rationale for the use of standardized patients (SPs) in health professions education.
Explain the process for developing an SP case (including the development of case objectives and checklist, as well as considerations of diversity, inclusivity, and bias).
Create an outline for a SP case for formative (teaching) or summative (assessment) purposes.
