The New York Simulation Center for the Health Sciences has access to over 130+ per diem Standardized Participants (SPs) who are employed by the NYU Grossman School of Medicine. All programs who utilize SPs services within the NYU Langone Health System must contact the simulation center to work with these individuals.
Objective Structured Clinical Exams or Exercises (OSCEs) are training or assessment programs in which learners rotate through a series of time-limited “stations.” In encounters with SPs in each (or most) of a series of stations, the learner is asked to perform specific tasks that are kept constant across all trainees. Rating forms with predetermined performance criteria are used to assess the learner’s performance in a standardized fashion (Zabar et.al, 2013).
Variations of OSCEs are dependent upon educational goals and objectives of activities. Most OSCE assessments and recordings are captured in our learning management system, BLINE. Program types may include:
SPs are recruited in advance to program dates:
SPs are recruited and scheduled by NYSIM for specific programs. Programs that require the use of SPs need to make a reservation through the NYSIM website and will be contacted for a program intake. NYSIM does not have any SPs on-site regularly, unless scheduled for a program.
There may be associated fees depending on the nature of the program that will be charged to the program. An estimate of fees will be generated after the intake.
Through educational consults and the intake process, we enjoy collaborating with our stakeholders to design programs to meet their educational goals and objectives.
