Medical Education, Coronavirus Infection, Pandemics, Medical Assistance


The pandemic of COVID-19 infection is a challenge for the various strata of society, and medical education has been no exception. Globally, universities have proposed various initiatives that in the undergraduate can be summarized in: virtualization of part of their curricular content; curriculum modification and the student’s activities and incorporation of students of the last years to the management of COVID-19 patients. In medical residency, surgical specialties and those that base their learning on procedures are the most affected. Residents of different specialties have been incorporated into healthcare tasks different from their specialty and some of their learning activities have been virtualized. Peru must make an evaluation of these strategies and the possible adaptation to our reality.
