Child Standardized Patient Application
The Standardized Patient Program is proud to recruit and employ children, anywhere from birth to 18 years old, to provide students with learning experiences related to pediatrics. Students practice many different assessment skills such as speech, physical fitness, developmental, ultrasound and physical examinations with our pediatric standardized patients.
Children are issued checks in their own name after completing events. Parents are required to be with their child during the duration of the event. Children under six years of age will need a signed physician’s note on letter head detailing that they are eligible to participate in the program and that participation will not be detrimental to their health in any way. There are a number of tax forms that will need to be filled out as well for children of all ages. Once all forms are filled out, children will be paid a total of $45.00 to compensate for the time it took to fill out the paperwork.
