|University of South Alabama medical student Theresa Yarbrough examines a simulated patient during a mock Step 2 CS board exam in the USA College of Medicine's Patient Simulation Lab.|
In this exercise, the patient is actually an actor who presents with a set of medical concerns. The students are evaluated on how well they interact with the patient. The patient encounters are recorded and then shared with the students. The standardized patients also evaluate the students and give them feedback related to their communication skills, as well as their abilities to gather data and perform physical exams.
