How is the field of PA education changing and adapting during the pandemic?
Budgets are shrinking. Students are demanding quality education continue even if they are learning remotely. Therefore, faculty are trying to adjust to teaching online – some with little or no experience. Major disruption is underway, and some institutions will innovate and thrive while others will struggle to survive.
Anything else that you would like to add?
Thanks to IAMSE for being such a great partner!
