It is often said that “through adversity comes strength” and these COVID times have created significant adversity in healthcare education necessitating strength to overcome the challenges. The nature and pace of this change is unprecedented in recent times. This has forced educators and clinicians to explore new avenues and examine what we have been doing in the past and to determine what we may continue with in the future.
The aims of this Special Interest Group are to explore and share how schools have overcome the adverse challenges with what has been tried, what worked, what did not and what will be continued. In particular, what innovative practices will be carried forward post-COVID as a sign of our strength as we emerge from the global pandemic.
Attendance at this session will enable delegates:
- To gain understanding on how educators have innovated dental curricula, clinical practice, student contacts considering the global pandemic to ensure proper competence acquisition.
- To gain insights and perspectives on what schools may or may not consider implementing after the pandemic is over based on the shared experience and outcomes presented
