Growing up, faking sick either got you out of school for a day or in a heap of trouble for attempting it.
But for those hired by the College of Medicine to take part in the Standardized Patient Program, the fine art of faking symptoms of illness is helping students learn, work and interact with real human patients.
Standardized patients are individuals paid by the school to portray a patient with some kind of sickness or other side effect.

Aiming to address nearby shortages in mental healthcare and to help build the bourgeoning College of Medicine, CMU's Health Division secured a psychiatry residency this fall.
Under the umbrella of CMED, the residency will provide treatment for a wealth of psychological issues facing students and local residents as a fully-functioning psychiatric practice, and will train students looking for a career in psychiatry.
The addition of the psychiatry department is also a requirement for CMED to be accredited through the Liaison Committee on Medical Eduacation, the national accrediting body for medical schools.
"It has been a concern for years, this need for more psychiatrists in mid Michigan," said Chief of Psychiatry Ron Bradley.
The College of Medicine has raised $21.3 million toward its funding goal for CMED East in Saginaw.
Receiving $25,000 from the Mid Area Community Foundation and $20,000 from the Bay Area and Saginaw community foundations, the gifts put CMED at 85.2 percent of its funding goal of $25 million for the added location.
Sharon Mortensen, CEO of the Midland Area Community Foundation, said CMED's proposed mission of addressing regional physician shortages in the Great Lakes Bay Region and across Michigan, is a dire concern for the people of her community.
"The access to care is an issue to people in this community," she said.
Many residents of northern and central Michigan are struggling to receive primary health care.
Through partnerships with regional hospitals in rural and urban areas suffering from physician shortages, CMED hopes to ultimately send students into those areas to begin working on a solution.
"Appointment availability is a real problem," said Associate Dean of Clinical Education and Hospital Relations Sean Kesterson.

For Knight, the husband of Associate Vice President of Communications Sherry Knight, the opportunity to be closer to family while working in a brand new position as CMED director of marketing and communications was too much to pass up.
"Family is certainly a part of it," Knight, a 1984 CMU alum, said.
