UCR School of Medicine Recruiting New Standardized Patients

No experience required for individuals who want to help educate the next generation of physicians

UCR School of Medicine is recruiting standardized patients to help teach the next generation of physicians.

RIVERSIDE, Calif. (medschool.ucr.edu) — The University of California at Riverside School of Medicine is recruiting individuals of all races, ethnic groups, religions, and genders who are at least the age of 18 to work as standardized patients during the coming academic year.

A standardized patient is an individual who has been trained to accurately portray a medical patient and participate in a simulated office visit where student doctors interact with them, ask questions, and/or conduct a basic physical exam. No acting experience nor previous experience as a standardized patient is required. Individuals must be able to consistently recall the script and background of the patient you are portraying. Also, personal dependability, basic computer knowledge and internet access are essential.

The School of Medicine will be hosting preliminary interviews on Tuesday, July 28. Selected candidates will be invited to return that afternoon for a workshop that will include paid training.

Standardized patients opportunities are offered Monday through Friday, with hours varying depending on the job and program requirements. Training is given to prior to all encounters and jobs are offered based on experience and demographics of the case/exam being performed.

Pay for standardized patients is $20 per hour with a two-hour-minimum commitment.

To secure an interview time and parking pass, please email Amanda.Lockhart@ucr.edu.
