So in exactly 6 hours I will take the 10th standerdized patient exam of my medical training. I am now a 3rd year IM resident. I think the whole thing is obserd!!!!

What a waist of time, money, resources, and energy. The incoming residents have all paid 1000 dollars to take this test as part of their board exam and now they have to spend a morning with actors being paid with our educational money to play doctor.

Anybody else fed up with standerdized pts? Just because you are not a good actor - does that mean you are not a good doctor?

I hate them! They are so nerve-wracking and artificial.

Another silly hoop we have to jump through.

I found out my program receives grant money to continue their standardized patient program and I must play along to justify their budget.
