New Collection on iCollaborative

This MedEdPORTAL resource collection was built in response to the COVID-19 pandemic’s significant impact on the teaching and learning of health professionals. Designed by diverse educators, this working collection features clinical learning experiences, which can be readily used or easily adapted for specific, local settings, without the need for physical patient contact.​

We actively seek submissions of learning experiences, particularly those that support patient care, but do not involve direct patient contact. Once submitted, the resources will be included in a collection that will be free and widely available to the community of health professions education.
