Automatic paraphrase generation is a task explored in many areas of natural language processing. In this study we attempt to use automatic paraphrasing to augment the training data for a virtual patient dialogue system. The system performs in-domain question answering in an attempt to replicate the function of standardized patients, and aid medical students in practicing their patient interviewing skills.
