Abstract

We report on the response to the Coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19) crisis by clinical educators, scholars, and researchers in academic medicine. Our review article presents the challenges, advantages, and impact of this long-lasting pandemic emergency on the transition to eLearning, online publishing, and teleconferencing. Advances in educational technology and digital tools allow us to transform our outdated practices by reshaping medical education, scholarship, academic and public services. Educators of the future are not traditional large-group lecturers, small-group proctors, and clinical trainers. They are all of the above, and much more. They are facilitators of the learning processes which occur locally, globally, and virtually. Modern educators and scholars are adaptable to change and are productive and resilient in difficult and uncertain times. They are creators of the learning material that may be used both for online and face-to-face activities. They are effective team players and flexible research collaborators, and are able to see and do things differently. They are open to innovative ideas and willing to share knowledge, experience, and expertise with their peers and learners through different types of academic and public services. Step-by-step instructions for organization of teleconferences provided in our article may serve as a model for academic health science institutions and organizations for rapid transition to online academic services.
