Preview

Simulated patients (SPs) are normal people who are trained to portray a patient in an authentic, realistic way. SPs can also be trained to portray a patient in a standardized, consistent way, as is required for (high-stakes) assessments. This chapter discusses the use of SPs for teaching purposes at Maastricht University. The main part of the contribution of SPs at FHML is teaching during the three preclinical years of the six-year problem-based curriculum.
