ORGANIZATION: Standardized Patient Program - John A. Burns School of Medicine

  • 105 people are interested

The John A. Burns School of Medicine is currently looking for volunteers to portray patients for student medical exams. No acting experience required.

You will be trained to portray a medical patient in live roleplay sessions, and to help evaluate students on their clinical skills by filling out checklists. These events take place in our Medical Education Building on campus or through zoom.

This is an opportunity to contribute to the care of future patients of our students. Other benefits include: giving back to our medical community, contributing to the education of future HI doctors, practice in the skill of acting/roleplay, networking with other actors and community members, learning about medicine, clinical skills, communication, etc.

When funds are available, we provide a stipend for your time--usually up to $100 per half-day. We provide parking, snacks, and when possible, we provide lunch for all-day events.
