Abstract

Health professions programs heavily depend on experiential learning to prepare learners for practice within the healthcare system. Learners acquire a significant proportion of patient care skills as they participate in experiential learning activities. As the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic disrupts education globally, educators have been challenged to reexamine existing teaching approaches to minimize the impact on experiential educational outcomes. This article describes how educators from the College of Pharmacy and College of Medicine at Qatar University utilized nontraditional teaching methods to ensure the continuation of experiential learning despite the disruption due to the pandemic.
