Special Workshops

How to Use Zoom to Run Interactive Journal Clubs, Morning Report, or Other Didactic Sessions
Walter Eppich, MD, PhD and Mary McBride, MD, MEd

Physical distancing limits our current ability to convene for traditional educational events. Online platforms such as Zoom offer the option to continue formal elements of residency and fellowship training, although these formats present challenges to promote interactive and learner engagement. Simple strategies help your session go from tedious to engaging.
