Standardized Patient Center

ARCOM strives to create a learning environment for our student-doctors that prepares them to assess, diagnose and treat patients in a professional, caring setting.  The Objective Structured Clinical Examinations (OSCE) uses Standardized Patients or “actors” that are coached to portray patients with medical and mental health conditions of a real patient.  Our student-doctors have a hands-on opportunity to learn effective communication and diagnosing skills in order to provide patients with excellent, personal health care.
