A recording of this session is available to watch on YouTube.
Introduction and the national perspective
Reviewing the timeline of events – how the pandemic impacted on medical education nationally and the national discussions through the Medical Schools Council (MSC) about how to respond. Moving initially from discussions about delivering teaching with social distancing to the full lockdown and the need for remote delivery.
The local response
Overview of how the curriculum was restricted locally – how remote teaching delivery was organised locally for students, restructuring of the theoretical elements and reorganisation of clinical experiences and practical procedures teaching.
Supporting the faculty
Discover how the School has been helping faculty (mainly frontline NHS doctors) to deliver the remote teaching programmes and introduction to the School's open access resource – Virtual Medical Education (VME).
Experiences supporting newly graduated doctors in the FiY programme
Final year students were graduated early and many of them volunteered to help with frontline NHS care during the pandemic. This was the FiY programme. How did that programme work, how were the students/junior doctors supported during this programme.
