Use your improv and acting skills to present medical conditions to a team of medical students who then must use their training for the diagnosis. The work can be steady, the pay pretty good. But what's really involved? Is it something you'd be comfortable doing? And, if so, where do you sign up?
In this workshop, Carol Randolph, an experienced Standardized Patient actor, will walk you through the logistics of this work, point you toward opportunities, and answer all your questions.
This is for all AC members, regardless of specialty or experience, age18+.
This is a presentation, not a demonstration. Carol will provide details about Standardized Patient work so that you can decide if this is a field you'd like to pursue. Each participant will receive a list of contacts at all the area medical schools.
CAROL RANDOLPH has worked as a Standardized Patient at several area med schools, primarily Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USUHS) in Silver Spring, since 2007. She also has nine years' experience as a Physical Exam Teaching Associate (PETA) at USUHS. Carol's acting credits include performances at Olney Theatre, Shakespeare Theatre Co., 1st Stage, Chesapeake Shakespeare Co. and Maryland Ensemble Theatre, in addition to film and commercial work.
(Silver Spring Stage is in the Woodmoor Shopping Center, where there's public parking in front and behind the shops. There is an elevator at the front entrance to the theater.)
