Teaching Clinical Medicine During the Pandemic: Experiences and Insights


The Covid pandemic nearly brought our lives into a different dimension beyond our imagination. Measures to ensure the safety of everyone have never been stricter. The education system had to deal with similar restrictions. Everyone shifted to online virtual classes, which has never been easy to both the teachers and students. Not only are we concerned of our responsibilities as educators but responsive to the needs of students and patients as well during these times of uncertainties. This article briefly describes my personal insight on teaching medicine and how patients continue to take part in the learning process of students despite restrictions.
