*"The Simulated/Standardized Patient (SP) is a person who has been
carefully coached to simulate an actual patient so accurately that the
simulation cannot be detected by a skilled clinician.  I**n performing the
simulation, the SP presents the gestalt of the patient being simulated; not
just the history, but the body language, the physical findings, and the
emotional and personality characteristics as well."*
