The ‘New Norm’ Created Virtual Classrooms; Appreciative Students Share Their Thanks
When COVID-19 changed the in-person, campus learning environment a couple months ago, Ross University School of Medicine (RUSM) colleagues, students and instructors swiftly transitioned to an online platform to continue providing unparalleled education. And students—many of whom graciously stepped up to assist with the pandemic—became resilient with the change, appreciate of the seamless conversion.
For nearly three months now, Ross Med faculty has engaged students through self-paced programs and alternative clinical experiences by utilizing online tools and unconventional methods to further educate, empower and embolden diverse healthcare professionals who are advancing healthcare.
