The medical education system was badly affected by COVID-19. Medical students are grappling with the changes that have been made and attempting to consolidate these with their plan of career development. They are unable to acquire practical knowledge. Face-to-face tutorials are being canceled and they are unable to take clinical contact with patients.

The pandemic is completely different and shocking that is being experienced all over the globe. The lockdown concept is completely different and does not go at all with our regular schedule in life. Despite that, the students have done their level best and their confidence level has been boosted. And they are prepared enough to face this situation.

Coronavirus has had a profound impact on medical education worldwide. Closure of the medical schools and universities has disrupted the learning and education of future health professionals.

Teaching in classrooms and experiments in laboratories were canceled, leaving students to continue their studies remotely. Nearly all medical students’ clinical placements have been stopped. Students have missed months of educational experiences and training that would normally be considered fundamental in their education and progression. Students training have experienced a different sort of disruption to their educational opportunities. We still haven’t come out of it, COVID-19 continues to impact the way we live, work, and learn, it seems increasingly clear that medical schools and post graduations training organizations will need to be flexible, responsive, and creative in how they adapt to educating this next generation of doctors at a time of physical distancing. It’s not limited up to the medical field but the whole education sector is impacted by COVID-19.
