10 minute talk
Medical students learning experience was hugely disrupted by the pandemic as opportunities to learn in the clinical environment were suspended then adapted to meet their needs in a safe way. We established teaching clinics for medical students during the pandemic which were modified to allow students to engage in a consultation with patients and practice communication skills whilst managing their exposure to COVID. There was positive feedback from students (10) and patients (5). Here we share lessons we learnt this year and discuss how this experience has changed the way we teach clinical medicine.
