Principles for Foundational Learning in the COVID-19 Era:

  • The University of Massachusetts Medical School seeks to provide a learning environment that is as safe and supportive as possible, including during this pandemic
  • The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic is complex and affects individuals in different ways
  • Learners build competence through a blend of independent and group learning experiences using a variety of settings and modalities
  • There is no way to guarantee zero risk of acquisition of SARS-CoV-2 during this pandemic, despite excellent infection control practices and supporting policies
  • Accommodations processes and policies are in place to address personal medical circumstances that may impact a learner’s ability to participate in the curriculum
