my work as a standardized patient at the uofl college of medicine
what i do in this role:
● Play various patient roles in encounters with medical, nursing, dental, and pharmacy students
● Observe the students’ abilities to show empathy, assess the patient’s situation, and give accurate information
● Give post-encounter feedback on how to improve in future patient visits
The article I wrote about working as a standardized patient, which appeared in the August 2015 issue of Louisville Magazine, and won a local Society of Professional Journalists award.
