Beyond the Simulation

BEYOND THE SIM CENTER

SP-ed is a digital platform that conveniently and efficiently delivers the value of high-quality Standardized Patient-based education to a wide variety of health professionals at all stages of their careers. Best practices are followed in all phases of the development of educational programs with trained Standardized Patients (SP) accessible to any clinician with a computer or smartphone. This method provides a safe, controlled setting in which participants have the opportunity to benefit from this human interaction to master clinical, tele-health, and interpersonal skills and increase their confidence in many aspects of care delivery.


A Tech-Enabled World

BEYOND THE SIM CENTER

Nearly all U.S. academic centers now employ standardized patients for training of medical students and licensed health professionals. SP-ed takes the significant step of bringing this valuable educational modality into the tech-enabled, telehealth-focused world, permitting health care professionals from any geographic location to participate from their home or office, and eliminating the need to travel to a Sim Center.
