At work with Mark Clark, standardized patient
from The Virginian-Pilot
Over the past year-and-a-half, Mark Clark has had new-onset diabetes, asthma, delirium, depression, chronic pain, kidney stones and a botched colonoscopy. Or at least he has as a "patient" at Eastern Virginia Medical School. Clark works as a standardized patient, someone who simulates having an illness or affliction and is interviewed by medical students — or professionals who want refresher training — to reach a diagnosis and care plan.
