Student Research Opportunities Program
During standardized patient (SP) encounters, medical students interact with mock patients to practice clinical skills.The tone and language used by students with SPs to gather sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI) information are important reflections of the adequacy, frequency, and retention of training concerning these topics. Prompting these discussions with ease helps ensure gender minority patients are affirmed and receive comprehensive care.
