2020 was unexpected in every way. The challenges presented by COVID-19–specifically travel restrictions, healthcare fatigue, and social distancing mandates–inspired our team to think outside of the box, helping medical trainees globally to secure the clinical training they needed.
During 2020 we had 444 visitors! Many elected to participate in virtual clinical experiences—which launched in May 2020. Others rotated in-person at U.S. clinical training sites which offer personal protective equipment to visitors and strict protocols for safety in place.
Below you’ll find even more information on our 2020 visitors, their interests, and the experiences they booked.
