What Clients Have Said

Medical actors are an invaluable resource in medicine, particularly when it comes to training medical students. MACA actors were used many times at the Western Clinical School, University of Sydney, particularly in summative assessments where students had to take patient histories. The actors were much better at simulating patients than volunteers as they memorised the often complicated scripts with ease, and maintained the integrity of the roles over several hours, thus ensuring highly effective and reliable assessments.

The benefits to students are enormous when you use professional actors. Actors can give such realistic portrayals of medical conditions that students are totally absorbed by the performances and, as a result, their own learning increases appreciably.

Feedback from clinicians, examiners, tutors and medical students is always extremely positive for any teaching session involving actors and I would have no hesitation in recommending MACA to any of my colleagues working in medical education.

We have been using MACA throughout last year and this year and all our dealings have been professional and easy. Working with Tony I feel confident that he will find actors that suit our clients needs. The actors themselves are always delightful to work with and more than obliging. They are professional and well researched so when they are briefed on a medical condition they always have well rounded knowledge. I would not hesitate in recommending MACA to anyone who needs actors for Medical Research work.

Role acting for Medical exams can be specialised and difficult. I have found the actors from MACA to be willing, enthusiastic and very capable.  I have had no hesitation in calling on the group for each exam so far and will continue to do so.
