Medical student rotations paused immediately

March 18, 2020  //  FOUND IN: Strategy & Leadership

The Association of American Medical Colleges (AMMC) and Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) has recommended that, effective immediately, medical schools should pause all medical student clinical rotations until at least March 31.

The U-M Medical School has elected to align with this recommendation, effective immediately. Virtual learning opportunities can continue for medical students.

According to the AAMC and LCME, “this pause will allow the medical education community, including learners, to develop appropriate educational strategies and alternative clinical experiences to best assure safe, meaningful clinical learning for students. It will also help with current concerns about the availability of personal protective equipment.”
