I rely on this group of actors heavily in my own teaching and my consultation on other medical center’s teaching programs. After ten years of training these actors in the complexity of feelings and behaviors of patients or their family members involved in difficult medical situations, I can trust that their portrayals will be accurate, realistic, and responsive to the situation.
