The Standardized Patient Program (SPP) is an educational support unit in the Faculty Medicine that provides simulated / standardized patients to support the teaching and assessment needs of the FOM, its hospital partners, and sister Faculties at U of T. The SPP also operates major licensure examinations for a number professional licensing bodies, including the Medical Council of Canada (MD licensure), the Physio Alliance (physiotherapist licensure), and the Pharmacy Examining Board of Canada (pharmacist and pharmacy technician licensure).

The SPP is one of the largest standardized patient programs in North America with over 500 standardized patients on roster, who are involved in close to 450 projects per year. The program is a self-funded unit that provides fee-for-service educational support to over 100 internal and external clients.
