Medical School Admissions in the Time of COVID-19: Maintaining the Integrity of Holistic Review
Presenters: Christina Grabowski, PhD and Leila Harrison, PhD
Session: September 3, 2020 at 12pm Eastern Time
The COVID pandemic is not only impacting educational delivery, it is also impacting how we select future physicians. This webinar will include an overview of changes to medical school application screening and interview processes. Social distancing and safety concerns are pushing interviews to virtual forums which accommodates changing economic circumstances of applicants, while also highlighting concerns about disparities in access to needed technology and interview-ready environments. Presenters will discuss unique considerations along with potential unintended consequences on holistic review and, therefore, diversity in the physician workforce.
