Train to work as a standardized patient (SP)
A standardized patient (SP) is an individual who has been coached to consistently and accurately portray actual medical conditions or diseases—as well as a patient's history, physical findings, personality and behavior—in a non-punitive learning environment.
As a trained SP, you are compensated for participating in training activities for medical students, residents, nurses and allied health professionals. You will be matched to cases using specific criteria (age, gender, race, etc.).
Most of the standardized patient activities will be conducted in-person at Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – Temple, with COVID-19 precautions in place.
Standardized Patients are contingent workers of Baylor Scott & White Health. Upon on boarding, a background check, drug screen (to include nicotine) and COVID-19 and flu vaccinations are required.
The work of an SP is flexible and on a part-time basis. If you're interested, please contact us.
