For Standardized Patients & Clinical Skills Instructors

The GCPC uses standardized patients (SP’s) and Clinical Skills Instructors as key parts of our simulation programs.


These are part-time project-based employees.


Standardized patients are usually professional actors who portray patients in workshops and exams.

Clinical Skills Instructors are generally paramedics who run simulation equipment and teach basic skills.
