Indiana University School of Medicine COVID19 Course Case Study: TWI in Secret

Presented By:

Kathy Lee

Session Abstract:

The COVID19 pandemic struck medical schools especially hard in March 2020.  Suddenly, students were taken out of clinical experiences in order to keep them safe in a rapidly changing clinical environment where PPE was in short supply.

The clinical curriculum required a complete overhaul to be ready for launch at the end of April 2020.  Join me to hear the story of “TWI in Secret” where 12 medical students developed a COVID 19 course for their peers in less than a month with the use of clear processes, out of the box thinking and the willingness to not let perfect get in the way of good.
