Are you interested in contributing to the development of the next generation of healthcare professionals? As a Standardised/Simulated Participant (SP), you could help improve student experience, and make a real difference to the future of healthcare and medicine.

The University is going through an exciting period of growth and development in the area of health and wellbeing, with the newly formed College of Health and Science bringing together our 6 academic schools of:

  • School of Allied Health and Community
  • Three Counties School of Nursing and Midwifery
  • School of Psychology
  • School of Science and the Environment
  • School of Sport and Exercise Science
  • Three Counties Medical School
  • This is an exciting time to join the Simulated Patient Programme. You will have the opportunity to work across a variety of healthcare professions and programmes, whilst also having the flexibility to work around your personal circumstances.

    Simulated patients are people who are trained to play a specific patient role which allows a health and care student to practice their communication, consultation skills and physical examination skills. Simulated Patients are trained to realistically portray patient history, personality, physical findings and emotions of a real patient. Simulated patients act as a key stepping stone between the classroom and the clinic. They allow students practice in a safe environment before they meet ‘real' patients in the clinic. Such interactions give students the valuable opportunity to practise in a safe environment.

    We are looking for dynamic, enthusiastic individuals from all walks of life to take part. We want our participants to accurately portray the diverse communities that we live in and actively encourage people of all ages, genders, and cultural backgrounds to get involved.
