As the SARS-CoV-2 virus spread, medical students were pulled from hospitals, clinics, doctor’s offices, or their required rotations. This meant many students would not finish meeting all the requirements of mandatory rotations and skills needed for graduation. The need to fulfill those requirements necessitated developing new ways for the students to learn these missed skills. The need for physicians to work side-by-side with emergency managers and other public health personnel meant that new understanding of how the physician fits into the emergency management and public health preparedness framework was needed. This article details how a series of online modules was developed for fourth year medical students who missed their onsite mandatory emergency medicine rotation and the importance for this information to be included within the medical school curriculum.
