Multi-Institutional Collaborative Resident Education in the Era of COVID19




During the 2020 COVID19 outbreak, the Urology faculty remain(ed) dedicated to continuing resident education. As associate residency program director, Dr. Lindsay Hampson spearheaded the launch of the Urology Collaborative Online Virtual Didactics (COViD) lecture series using Zoom. Faculty from participating programs provide 1-hour long daily didactics sessions and residents listen to the lectures and participate in the Q&A/discussion. Recorded lecture remain accessible online after the “live” lecture ends. The initial purpose of the COViD series was to provide collaborative learning opportunities for residents borne out of an increased need for continued education during the viral pandemic. Surveys are completed by participants after viewing, and this data provide an interesting glimpse into what is happening nationwide during the pandemic. We hope that this series can evolve and persist so that these new collaborative educational efforts can outlast the pandemic and continue to provide a source of shared knowledge, resident teaching, and community building for our diverse field. 

This research lead to the publication of the “Multi-Institutional Collaborative Resident Education in the Era of COVID19” in Urology Practice. All figures are from that manuscript.
