Call for Virtual Standardized Patients

Acadicus is looking for independent contractors interested in participating as virtual standardized patients (VSP) in simulations as the voice of a patient.  Using a compatible windows PC with headphones, VSP’s are able to control the patient and interact with students.  Acadicus users can schedule time with trained VSP’s to assist with their live simulations.  

How it Works

Hire Virtual Standardized Patients

Schedule time with live, trained remote VSP’s to engage learners in live virtual simulations.  VSP’s serve as voice and puppeteer of the patient, using the Acadicus Simulation Manager to manipulate patient animations and other scene variables.

Become a Virtual Standardized Patient

Virtual Standardized Patients can work from any location, and are hired on an as-needed, hourly basis.  To qualify for training as a Standardized Patient operator for live simulations in our current phase 1 implementation, candidates must:  
  • own a compatible windows PC with headphones with a mic (info)
  • be able to operate as an independent contractor in the U.S. or Canada
  • identify which patient characters they would like to be considered as
  • provide any additional qualifications, such as experience with or studies in medical related fields, possession of Oculus Rift VR hardware (not required), experience with virtual simulation, etc.    
Hourly rates are determined based on experience, availability, and skill in operating virtual standardized patients in Acadicus.
