Skill-based practice requires hands-on, in-person training. There are inherent limitations to teaching/assessing these skills while simultaneously attempting to maintain a social distance of 6 feet between all individuals in the learning environment.
EVMS has, therefore, developed an overarching Mitigated Risk Model for the pre-clerkship phase of the MD program and for the skill-based components of the various School of Health Professions curricula at EVMS. The goal of this model is to minimize exposure/risk among students and faculty while also preserving important in-person, skill-based learning opportunities. This model ensures a consistent approach to mitigating risk and promoting safe learning among the different educational programs at EVMS.
