Paid Jobs

Patient Actor - (posted 7/13/21 by University of Wisconsin)

We are looking to hire two male actors for a research study in which the research subjects are 50 doctors who perform bone marrow transplants. Each actor will represent the same patient 25 times plus approximately 5 hours of training and rehearsal to prepare.

The purpose of this study is to investigate how hematologists (blood cancer doctors) communicate and engage in shared decision making with patients newly diagnosed with a high-risk bone marrow disease who need a transplant.

We need one AA/Black man and one white man who must appear 55-70 years old. Actors will be chosen who physically resemble one another other than skin color.

All of the work will be done remotely via Zoom or a similar platform. Training will include case discussion and practice until the actors demonstrate that they can represent the patient consistently across encounters. The training will be held with both actors together as we need the performances to resemble one another as much as possible. The actors will use improvisation to play the character rather than follow a script. We anticipate approximately 30-35 hours of work per actor and will provide $45/hour compensation for the performance, including training time, study encounters, and completion of post-visit surveys.

Please contact the investigator, Dr. Toby Campbell at tcc@medicine.wisc.edu if you would like more information or to express interest.
