The emergence of COVID-19 has disrupted medical education. The profound effects of the pandemic will forever change how future physicians learn and care for patients. The delivery of physician training, in the classroom and clinical setting, requires intense and prompt attention from medical educators. In response to the pandemic, faculty members have quickly transitioned much of the medical curriculum to a virtual format. Clerks who are assigned to clinical rotations have faced significant interruption in their clinical activities. It is imperative that the academic community learns from this pandemic and prioritizes a forward-thinking and scholarly approach that embraces practical solutions.
