The COVID-19 pandemic has challenged the continuity of formal medical education across the world. Despite the tremendous barriers that lockdown conditions have imposed upon educators, this has been a period of incredible evolution and powerful change, characterised by the development of a wealth of new and innovative ways to overcome and improve upon traditional conceptions of teaching and learning in healthcare.
Innovators in medical education have taken this enormous obstacle and turned it into an extraordinary opportunity to improve medical education forever. Therefore, the essence of this conference will be to ensure that the legacy of this period of lockdown does not forget the pioneering work currently making transformational progress within the field of medical education.
This conference aims to provide an open and on-going discussion of our collective, local and national experiences along with the hurdles involved in teaching the new generation of healthcare professionals remotely. We want to address the question: how can we learn from each other to provide medical education to health professionals as well as undergraduate and postgraduate students across the world?
This virtual conference will be held on Saturday 6th June from 9:30am to 4:30pm.
