Third and fourth year medical students were recruited to participate as simulated patients and examiners in an Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) administered for second year medical students. Students reported they were motivated to participate, not only by the honorarium, but because they believed the OSCE would be fun and interesting and because they were interested in medical education and in improving clinical evaluation. The third and fourth year medical students benefitted academically and financially from participation. Faculty benefitted by having a readily available source of enthusiastic and knowledgeable simulated patients.
