The Victorian Simulated Patient Network (VSPN)

Welcome to the Victorian Simulated Patient Network (VSPN) website. The VSPN aims to provide individuals interested in simulated patient (SP) practice with a network to share with and from each other.

SPs are individuals trained to portray real patients. SPs contribute to health professional education in many ways. There is a spectrum of SP practices that are expanding.

The VSPN aims to connect SPs, educators, students, clinicians and others through this website.

In May 2015, we have close to 500 members who come from every continent.

Over the next few months you will notice differences to the website with new tabs, news items and new resources.  We will also have a discussion board for members to share their experiences and seek advice from other members. This discussion board will be located with the modules.

This is an exciting time for the VSPN and we hope you will stay connected to support and contribute to the new platform.


The VSPN learning modules will be unavailable between 11 PM, AEDT on Friday 4th December and 8:00 AM Monday 7th December due to a scheduled Moodle update.
