AbstractThe University of Maryland School of Medicine embarked on our first major curriculum revision since 1994 with a plan to implement this Renaissance Curriculum in August 2020. However, in the Spring of 2020, the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic disrupted clinical care and medical education on a large scale requiring expeditious modifications to our Renaissance Curriculum as well as our traditional Legacy Curriculum in order to meet our goal of educating the next-generation of physicians. The rippling effects of the COVID-19 pandemic led to major changes in the delivery of the pre-clerkship curriculum, the way we assessed and evaluated students, entry into the clinical environment, length of clinical rotations, and orientation for our new medical students. We relied on “new” technology, digital medical resources, and the creativity of our educators to ensure that our learners continue to acquire the skills necessary to become skilled clinicians in these unprecedented times. ©2020 The Authors.
