Challenges & Opportunities in Neurology Education in the Virtual Era
Friday, May 14th
2pm - 4pm CST / 3pm - 5pm EST
Fee: Complimentary to AUPN members, all are welcome to attend
Covid-19 has many effects on academic Neurology, but among the most dramatic has been the effect on education. Both undergraduate and graduate medical education have been affected. Reduced opportunities for direct patient contact have created challenges in education related to physical exam skills, but at the same time the ability to meet virtually has created new opportunities for learning. The panel members are neurologists actively involved in different aspects of teaching both medical students and residents. They will discuss the impacts of virtual learning which they have observed, describe strategies which have proven helpful, and consider how we can carry the lessons learned forward into a post-COVID era.
- Describe the challenges presented by the recent need to move undergraduate and graduate medical education in Neurology to a virtual format.
- Discuss the opportunities for education created by the use of virtual technologies.
- Consider how the use of virtual technology will impact education in the post-COVID era.
