Video Conferencing Software Help Improve COVID-19 Patient Care

Both undergraduate and graduate medical education has been affected due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. The virtual delivery of educational content with the help of video conferencing software and social media platforms is becoming a fast-growing phenomenon. Hence, stakeholders in the medical education market are increasing awareness about adherence toward social distancing with the implementation of available technologies. Though pre-recorded content is becoming increasingly available for learners, in-person teaching holds a lot of significance to prepare medical professionals for rigors of clinical training.
