What to Keep, Drop, or Modify in Medical Practice—Flipping the Teaching Hospital: How the COVID-19 Pandemic Motivated Overdue Changes in Medical Education

Tuesday, June 15
2-3:30PM EST

This panel will explore the various ways in which the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted how physicians are taught and trained. Drawing from perspectives at different stages in the medical educational pipeline, the conversation seeks to unpack the issues exposed over the past year, with an eye toward clarifying how the pandemic might catalyze improvements that are long overdue.

The Center for Complexity invited clinicians and medical professionals from across the country to consider the future of medicine in the US—from education to equity to issues as broad as empathy, humanity and the very survival of our species. Ten healthcare professionals welcomed our invitation to engage in unscripted conversations, reflect on their practice during the pandemic and consider what should be maintained, eliminated or modified in the field of medicine.
