Abstract

Background Information

  • Students learn best through active engagement. Although experiences vary, practicing skills in clinical situations have proven to be an effective method.
  • Practicing skills in a simulated controlled environment provides opportunities for students to receive feedback on their skills.
  • Standardized patient experiences provide students a safe environment to practice clinical skills in challenging situations. These experiences have been shown to have a positive impact on learning.
