Drs. Binks and Weinstein will share their perspectives, providing examples of how medical education changed abruptly with the COVID-19 pandemic, emphasizing what changes may have some lasting benefit.
Andrew Binks has taught medical physiology for over two decades. His interest in innovative, active learning strategies has led him to give development workshops and keynote presentations at national and international levels. His evidence-based approach to medical education has allowed him to transfer his basic science research experience to study the impact of innovations in classroom and curricular design. Recently, this led him to spear-head a multi-institutional report on the impact of COVID-19 on medical education and postulate on its future ramifications.
Dr. Adam Weinstein recently joined the faculty at Netter School of Medicine as an Associate Professor of Medical Sciences and Pediatrics to assist in directing the Clinical Arts and Sciences course and direct the Medical Student Home program. He worked at Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth for 12 years, serving as section chief of Pediatric Nephrology, director of Pediatric Medical Student Education, director of the Problem Based Learning curriculum, co-director of On Doctoring, and chair of the Medical Education Committee.
