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.
