We focus on creating an environment that is conducive for learning and providing the teaching and assessment encounters necessary for learners of all levels to acquire, apply, and demonstrate the skills they will need as professionals.

Our facility
The Wichman Clinical Teaching and Assessment Center was created to be a top-notch clinical simulation facility, where future health care leaders can hone their skills with access to standardized patients and the latest educational technology.

Standardized Patient Program

The Standardized Patient Program began in 1994 and is an integral part of the Clinical Teaching and Assessment Center. Standardized patients role-play cases and, in some case, undergo physical examinations to ensure learners encounter a consistent environment for learning and evaluation. The program currently has more than 150 standardized patients who assist in clinical teaching.
