International Medical Education Conference (IMEC) 2021
The Covid-19 pandemic has had a major impact on most parts of the world including higher education and medical education. Medical schools have made significant changes to the delivery of education. Initially many thought the changes were on temporary, but as the pandemic has persisted it has become apparent that some/ most of the changes will continue, even if the pandemic can be controlled. The acceptance of online education by students and staff has been remarkable and to go back to the way we were, does not seem sensible of viable.
This conference will explore the changes. What should we keep, what should we discard and what should we modify? Come and explore these changes with us.
