Sample Cost Estimate
The activity would involve having 12 residents completing 2 patient encounters with verbal feedback provided by the Standardized Patients.
For such an activity we would schedule 4 residents at a time for 1 hour sessions. This would require a 3 hour block to accommodate the 12 residents.
This activity would require 3 SP's for each of the 2 cases. The SP's would be scheduled for 3.5 hours for the session. Having 3 SP's for each case would allow each SP appropriate break time in order to avoid fatigue from doing too many encounters consecutively.
There would be a total of 6 SP's for the 3.5 hour session at $15/hr.
6 SP's x 3.5 hours x $15/hr = $315 SP Cost for the session
Assuming that the two cases would be relatively uncomplicated ("typical") cases; Training should be 5 hours per SP.
6 SP's x 5 hours x $15/hr = $450 SP Cost for Training
Total SP Cost $315 + $450 = $765.00
25% SP Program fee = $191.25
Total Cost for Project = $956.25
