Become a Simulated Patient – The UGA College of Pharmacy is expanding its use of simulated patients in the PharmD curriculum. Simulated patient experiences provide a more true-to-practice environment for pharmacy students to apply clinical, problem solving, and professional skills. These encounters typically emphasize application of clinical drug knowledge and communication skills, such as appropriate patient questioning and medication counseling. To meet this growing need, the UGA College of Pharmacy is currently recruiting individuals who are interested in playing a simulated patient 3-4 times a year.
