Abstract

With COVID-19 causing a rift in schedules and long-standing educational activities while restricting in person sessions that typically foster a sense of community, residencies were left to devise new ways to come together and continue on with education. The deeply engrained tradition of a morning case-based report led by senior residents was adapted to a virtual report in the evenings. While the format for presenting cases was similar, participation increased while helping build a further reaching community. This not only allowed for a 40-year-old tradition to continue to carry on through a pandemic, it gave a space for residents, alumni, and attendings to come together and rebuild a sense of normalcy and community to help bear through life altering events.
