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.
