Kip Clark describes himself as being passionate about better and more meaningful communication. This belief guides his work as a standardized patient with medical students and as a podcast host and producer. Clark came to working as a standardized patient work from a background in improv comedy. He is a graduate of Kenyon College with a degree in English Literature.

In this podcast, Kip Clark and Helen Osborne discuss:

  • Tips and strategies about health communication that can apply in all settings. These include listening, being flexible, and authenticity.
