Dear healthcare workers, students and anyone who contributes
to healthcare during these extraordinary days
After the 11th of March 2020, our lives have changed dramatically in a way that we would never have imagined. We are facing unprecedented changes in our environment as peers in society, economies, education, and in any form of the philosophy behind “globalization”. During these days, we see how important health, science, and education are for ourselves and for future scenarios that might happen in this manner.
As EMSA, we have been reviewing the ongoing situation, and now, we are publishing our perspectives on the effects of the pandemic. At the end of this report, you will find our statement regarding the ongoing situation of medical education in Europe; focusing on student engagement, distance learning, and student employment. With literature research and a conducted survey study among our member countries and faculties, we are now presenting our opinions regarding the situation.
You can find our recommendations for faculties, hospitals, educational committees, higher education councils, as well as students.
