One of the challenges of modern medical schools is finding a way for students to practice their patient care skills before they interface with a live patient. Human simulated patients are realistic manikins that act like real patients in both sounds and actions. The technology these manikins offer needs to be supported by a well developed lesson plan that insures a student's transfer of learning. In this project, the researcher provides a scenario based lesson plan that allows the students to practice patient care skills safely, using simulated patients in a realistic environment. The use of such a curriculum allowed students to stop the simulation, ask questions, and receive immediate feedback from a qualified instructor. Also, it provides the students with the opportunity to improve their psychomotor skills since they are allowed as many repetitions as needed until basic skill levels have been attained.
