Current Status of the Standardized Patient Programs in Korea and Plans to Develop and Improve the Program

Abstract

Though SP programs have been used in Korean medical education for half a decade, few of those SP programs have demonstrated psychometric characteristics. In order to be a more useful educational tool, and in to more accurately evaluate Korean Medical students, the standardized patient program needs to be more thoroughly researched and developed. In the near future, if Korean medical educators lend their support and standardize the program in Korea, SPs will be widely adopted across the curriculum because of their potential advantages: from medical interviewing and physical diagnosis courses to clinical clerkships and residency training. This study demonstrates why Korean SP programs need early, systematic collaboration and cooperation among Korean medical colleges through a regional consortium in order to form an agenda for the implementation of SP programs, and realize the implications of this agenda throughout medical education.
