To begin creating your own patient, you’ll first need to create a basis for it. If you haven’t created yours yet, start here.

Once you’ve created the basis for your patient scenario, you’ll be able to personalize most any aspect of it. 

Initially, the word "COPY" in the name field indicates your copied version. You can change the name, the scenario summary and description when clicking into those fields on the "Basics" tab.

Additionally you can decide your patients age,  whether your patient is male or female and even select a different language from the drop-down. 

Note: Selecting a different language will change the conversation language to French or Spanish. Female, Spanish and French patients are only available from simulator software version v004053-171120. (Check your simulator software by hovering over the "Simulator battery" line in simulator settings, status tab.)If you have not scheduled to update your ALEX simulator, drop us a note to

You can immediately start the new patient scenario on any ALEX simulator you have access to through the "Start Now on" list -  provided that chosen simulator is powered up and online. 

You can of course always run your shiny new patient directly from under the Simulators tab as well, just as you’d start a session on your Simulator normally.

Make sure to save your changes by clicking OK.
