Free Access - Covid19 papers in Medical Science Educator

As educators and students we are currently experiencing a very unique situation. Never before in recent history something came up that affected health care education on a global scale in such short timeframe. COVID-19 almost entirely shut down all teaching activities that we always took for granted. Obviously the impact is huge, on the individuals but also on the educational system and in the end also on the healthcare system where our students eventually are supposed to end up as professionals. Because this situation is new to all of us, nobody knows the right answers. Therefore it is so important we share our experiences, new developments and best practices in the literature, so that together we can keep working on the advancement of health sciences education, even in these disturbing times. It is a pleasure for me to showcase to you a few of such articles that were recently published in Medical Science Educator. I hope they will be beneficial to your own educational practice.
