Martha Kim was developed as part of a multi-station, standardized patient assessment. The student's performance is measured by checklists filled out by the standardized patient and by the evaluation of responses to written questions on the interstation exercise. This patient is a 66 y/o widow who was sent by her daughter to the outpatient clinic because she has become more forgetful. When tested she has difficulty with short-term memory. The examinee's task is to take a focused history and perform a focused physical examination. A complete set of student instructions, checklists, standardized patient training materials, written exercises and a grading key are included. The associated documents are available to faculty members only.
