Latino Memphis posts job openings from many employers throughout the MidSouth, however, Latino Memphis doesn’t take job applications for those job openings.
You must contact the employer directly to submit your application.
Your use of the Latino Memphis Job Board indicates you agree to and accept the terms listed in the Job Board Disclaimer.
Following the example of Momentum and other community partners, effective January 2021, Latino Memphis will only post and promote job openings for positions paying a minimum of $15 per hour. As an organization, we hold this standard for ourselves. We believe that employees should make a minimum living wage to support and provide for their families. We know that the wage disparity in Memphis, Tennessee, and across the nation disproportionately impact communities of color and immigrant communities. We hope this initiative will encourage others to support systemic initiatives that will promote upward mobility.
In addition to accepting the terms listed in the Job Board Disclaimer, please make sure you read the FAQ for Employers before posting your job opening.

This is a specialized (temporary) position and is not benefit eligible
Pay is: $20.00 per hour

The terms standardized patient and simulated patient (SP) are often used interchangeably and refer to a person trained to portray a patient (or patient’s family member) in realistic and repeatable ways. An SP is a person who has been coached to accurately and consistently recreate the personality, medical history physical findings, and emotional structure and response pattern of a patient at a particular point in time/treatment. (SPs do not disclose their own personal medical history, they will answer questions based on the “facts” of the “simulated patient case” that we will provide.)
The Center for Healthcare Improvement and Patient Simulation (CHIPS) at UTHSC employs SPs in the training and evaluation of health care professionals including: medical, nursing, pharmacy, dentistry, occupational therapy and physical therapy.
Under the supervision of the Assistant Director of Education for SPs, and the direction of SP Trainer(s), and/or UTHSC faculty, the SP provides the opportunity for learners to develop, practice, and enhance therapeutic communication, interviewing, physical examination, and non-invasive technical skills. The basic function of a SP is to simulate medical scenarios or cases with learners in experiential education and assessment contexts.
SPs are part of an educational team, focused on fulfilling the learning objectives of a simulation activity in service to our learners. SPs will be instructed and trained by the SP Trainer on a variety of educational projects depicting the prewritten characteristics of a patient or family member, portraying various case scenarios in a consistent manner for each learner, and providing evaluation and feedback to learners on their interactions. During teaching or assessment activities SPs should expect that the learner may interview, counsel and/or perform a basic (non-invasive) physical examination.
Important attributes include:
ESSENTIAL DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES include the following. Other duties may be assigned.
Must possess strong communication skills, both written and spoken.
Must have strong reading and writing skills to absorb and use the detailed case training and exam procedural information.
Must have excellent recall of learner performance. Attention to detail is essential.
Applicants with acting and/or teaching experience are encouraged to apply, though this is not an obligatory skill set.
Experience with software programs including MS office, and regular access to the internet is required.
EDUCATION AND/OR EXPERIENCE:
Training and/or experience in theatre, film, education, communication, or behavioral sciences is beneficial, but not required.
Very limited physical effort required with minimal exposure to physical risk.
