Teaching clinical skills to medical students: the use of simulated patients and videotaping in general practice

Teaching clinical skills to medical students: the use of simulated patients and videotaping in general practice

Medical Education 22(3): 193-199

This paper describes the use of simulated patients in a problem-based teaching programme designed to develop the clinical skills of medical students during a 5-week course in general practice in the University of Leicester. The logistics of training and the advantages of using simulated patients are discussed. Simulated patients are practicable and acceptable in a United Kingdom medical school, and the reaction of students to their use is favourable.
