Redesigning the Way Forward: How COVID-19 Will Impact Medical School Education

The COVID-19 outbreak has changed the way we live, work, and get an education, with school closures and transitions to online learning. Medical education is no different but involves the added imperative to continue training competent future physicians. With medical residency programs transitioning to COVID footings and medical schools largely removing students from the clinical setting earlier this year, many naturally wonder how COVID-19 will change the future of medical training. Join our esteemed panel of experts to discuss the implications of COVID-19, including such questions as:

  • Will online lectures and activities become the standard for preclinical medical students?
  • Are residents who have been pulled away from standard program curricula missing key competencies?
  • What are some of the innovative teaching and training approaches that have developed as a result of the COVID-19 changes and will they continue?
  • How should medical students plan and prepare for residency in this changing environment?
