Telehealth Clerkship
Developed and implemented a two-week Clerkship on telehealth for 3rd year medical students and 20 faculty/physician providers at Eastern Virginia Medical School (EVMS) during the COVID-19 pandemic. The clerkship prepared the medical students and faculty providers to deliver telehealth to patients utilizing telehealth. Students were matched with faculty providers from 10 different clinical programs (i.e., OB/GYN, Pediatric Oncology, Mental Health, Internal Medicine, etc.) in order to establish and implement telehealth programs in each specialty. Students and providers identified equipment needed, reimbursement strategies, legal and regulatory issues that would apply to the implementation; developed consent forms and protocol needed for telehealth delivery; and participated in simulation to develop the knowledge and skills needed to deliver telehealth visits. Telehealth programs were launched at the completion of the Clerkship.
Video Production for Telehealth

Wrote and produced a series of Telehealth Assessment Videos on “Conducting a Physical Exam through Videoconferencing without Peripherals” (2020)
