Harvard Medical School -Clinical Management Through COVID-19 Webinar Series
It is hard to believe it has been over a month since the WHO declared the COVID-19 pandemic and I can imagine we are all slowly starting to adjust to the new “normal.” At times I feel completely bombarded by all of the information available about the pandemic – it really is coming at us from all fronts. Overflowing email inboxes, the news, social media, medical literature…the list just goes on! The rate of new information about COVID-19 seems to be exponential and it’s a challenge to keep up. I had been searching for a few “go-to” resources that would give high yield, digestible, up-to-date summaries on key COVID-19 topics. I wanted to share this month with you a great online, webinar series I have been really enjoying for the past few weeks. Harvard PGME has put together a special continuing education webinar series that is given by various Harvard affiliated faculty. Each week they cover two different COVID-19 related topics on two separate days. Each webinar is an hour in duration and if you cannot watch it live, it is recorded and may be viewed at a later date. It was very simple to register for the webinar and then log on to view it. If you want to watch one to get a feel for the style, I highly recommend watching the one titled “Immunological testing during COVID-19.” It helped answer a lot of questions I had around immunity, testing, vaccines and also the big question “when and how is this going to end?” While not an ophthalmology specific resource, I have found them to very useful and a great complement to the COS “A Path to New Vision” webinars.
