Frequently Asked Questions
How will I interact with the Simulated Patients (SPs) in a virtual setting?
This is a simulated exam that follows the format of the standard Standardized Patient Exam, except it will be administered using a video conferencing system. The timing for the encounters and interactions will be roughly the same as in-person with one major exception: the physical exam and exam results will be completed verbally. In other words, the student might say something like “I’ll observe the abdomen, auscultar for bowel sounds, percuss to find the liver border, and palpate for masses or pain.” The SP will respond by saying, “The exam is normal except for rebound tenderness.

You will be given a link to the Patient Note System with login credentials for use during the simulated examination.
