Bedside teaching during the COVID‐19 pandemic


The impact of the SARS‐CoV‐2 pandemic on medical education is well described.

As a team of clinical educators supported by one of our students and an ethicist, we describe this unexpected challenge and how we navigated it in an already existing sea of COVID‐induced issues and uncertainty.
