VIRTUAL LEARNING IN MEDICINE DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC
Hence, the use of tele-technologies and augmented reality has a strong potential to provide a unique and valuable experience for medical students, as well as change the process of surgical training, as the education process can potentially include live proctoring by surgeons and allow remote interactions for an in-depth experience. Such practice is especially valuable in the times of pandemics, as tele-technologies allow social distancing and replaces in-class training as required by the public health policy. Thereby, the ongoing pandemics can be a valuable lesson for the medical community, serving as an example of difficulties for medical education during the periods of panic. The virtual learning in medicine has significantly transformed the medical training process during the novel coronavirus pandemics. Furthermore, the implementation of tele-technologies allowed the medical community to continue its enhancement and education, strengthening the sense of a unified community during the period of non-alternative social distancing. Thus, to sum up, the virtual learning platforms have the full potential to improve and enhance the process of medical training and education, in general.
