Standardized Patient – Part-Time Temporary

The Gardner-Webb University College of Health Sciences seeks Standardized Patients (SPs) to work with our students during Objective Structured Clinical Examinations (OSCEs) and/or simulated clinical experiences. This is a part-time, temporary position in which we are building a pool of applicants to use as needed throughout the year.

The College of Health Sciences includes students from the Department of Exercise Science, Department of Physician Assistant Studies, Hunt School of Nursing, and School of Psychological Science and Counselor Education. Each health science program is designed to be practice-oriented while developing in students an aptitude for knowledgeable and nurturing patient care.

The mission of the College of Health Sciences is to prepare graduates for employment in various healthcare fields by providing a rigorous, evidence-based education in a Christ-centered, interprofessional, and collaborative environment. Graduates of the College of Health Sciences will be prepared to provide service-oriented leadership within diverse healthcare settings.

The standardized patient will play the role of a patient while the health science student interviews, perform a physical exam, assesses, and/or develops a plan for the patient’s presenting complaint. For each OSCE or simulated clinical experience, the SPs are provided a written script describing the patient’s symptoms to prepare for their role.
