Pandemic Response Team - A Collaborative Effort to Rescue Students in the Clinical Experience

This session recording is sponsored by MediaLab.
From the 2021 Clinical Laboratory Educators Conference (CLEC) - Recorded February 27, 2021
Presented by Michelle Briski, MEd, MT(ASCP), and Ashley Martin, MS, MLS(ASCP)CMSH

The recent pandemic brought unprecedented challenges for clinical education, in some cases forcing programs to delay graduation. During this session laboratory educators will review the educational foundations for clinical rotations and evaluate tools to provide meaningful and equitable clinical experiences when using a blended learning model for clinical rotations.

At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe on-line learning supplements to clinical instruction
  2. Explain collaborative efforts across institutions to rapidly respond to canceled clinical experiences
  3. Describe lessons learned in rapidly moving clinical instruction to a virtual format
