Template for Standardized Patient Script
The following pages outline information needed to fully develop a standardized patient script using the script format approved by the Standardized Patient Advisory committee in June 2001.
If you are writing a new script: please fill in ALL historical information. If a physical examination is included please specify the portions of the physical examination that you anticipate the examinee will perform.
If you are reformatting an existing script: please attach the script and complete the areas of the template where the requested information is NOT present in the existing script.
While we recognize that a detailed description of the patient scenario is being requested, it is important to have this information to insure standardization of patients and accurate, reproducible portrayals. Please note: template modifications are available for the pediatric and geriatric patient. If you have any questions regarding a script, please contact:
