Rachel Regan 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 50-year old female who presents to the outpatient clinic with concerns that she is experiencing menopause. The student's task is to take a pertinent history and counsel the patient. 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. To request materials, contact the POGOe Managing Editor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
