COM Curriculum Modification During the COVID-19 Pandemic

The didactic portion of the majority of courses and/or educational activities will continue in on-line vs. hybrid fashion until further notice, with a progressive transition back to in-person education activities. Programs may bring students to campus for exams, simulations or clinical experiences as long as either (1) students  maintain social distancing, or (2) students utilize appropriate PPE if distancing cannot be maintained (e.g. clinical teams caring for a patient or working together in the simulation center).
