Distance Learning Resources

The Resources You Need. On Demand.

Updated: 1/27/2021 at 7:15 pm -- See links labeled "New" below.

As training directors in this unprecedented reality brought about by COVID-19, we're in need of resources and tools that will enable us continue to educate residents, care for our patients, and care for ourselves, but from afar. 

To do this, excellent quality distance learning is desperately needed. AADPRT has developed the below centralized list of distance learning resources and is asking its community of training directors to add to it -- sharing resources has always been one of our core values. These resources are updated as new ones are submitted. 

Navigate the resources below or get full resource information and sort them here.

AAMC Coronavirus Resources and Information
The AAMC has curated resources on the new coronavirus specifically geared toward the academic medicine community. The page, which contains information on students, education, and the response from academic health centers, will be updated regularly. The AAMC and LCME have also issued guidance calling for medical schools to pause all student clinical rotations until at least March 31. 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. The American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine also offered similar guidance for DO students.

The CDC also posted resources on coping with stress, taking care of your emotional health, and helping children cope. The American Psychiatric Association, a CFAS-member society, also published a resource on how to take care of your mental health during infectious disease outbreaks.
