Abstract

Graduate medical education was drastically disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic. With a halt on all in-person educational sessions in response to the need for social distancing, residency programs across the country scrambled to develop virtual curricula with some difficulty, given the limited guidance to creating online learning platforms prior to the onset of the pandemic. In-person Socratic discussions have always been the cornerstone of internal medicine training. Here, we discussed our experiences of translating the in-person model and to a virtual platform, highlighting the upfront financial burden that doing so can have. Time will need to pass before we can fully appreciate the profound impact, or lack thereof, of remote learning on GME.
