As I write this blog, the world is in a state that I have never dreamt of before. A novel virus has infected and taken the lives of so many vulnerable populations. I think that is really surprising and at a time like this is the fact that it happened so fast. One month I was finishing my very last audition rotation and ending my residency interviews, and the next month we were pulled out of our rotations. Our medical school among others pulled us out of our rotations to ensure our safety of others. Thankfully leadership got together and spent days putting together an online curriculum that would help us finish our final rotations as first, second, third, and fourth-year medical students. Unfortunately, we had to cancel our Match Day celebrations, graduation, and some other gatherings but at a time like this, my classmates and I are more worried about how we can prepare ourselves as new physicians to help further promote the wellbeing of our communities. How has your medical education been changed since the pandemic?
