Simulated Patient Training

Simulated patients are all ages and come from a wide range of backgrounds. Some have been patients or carers in the past, others are professional actors.

Want to become a simulated patient?

Can I become a simulated patient?

You don’t need to have any experience working as a simulated patient.  We work with all kinds of people with different experiences but all with a positive approach and a willingness to make a difference in the Australian healthcare system.

We train you and prepare you for your role

We understand the importance of properly preparing simulated patients; both for their benefit and for the benefit of the students they will work with.  We provide you with the necessary training and ensure you are adequately equipped to undertake the role required.

"It was a most interesting encounter with so many talented people from whom we have so much to learn. It was a most professional presentation. Congrats to you and your team."
Alex O’Sullivan May 2013
