According to MedPage Today, in less than two months, medical schools across the nation will welcome a new first-year class. For the first time in modern history, the students will find themselves in a virtual world. They will rarely see one another or their professors. They will temporarily forgo the white coat ceremony. They will take exams in large rooms separated by barriers and empty desks and never “enjoy” their time in the study carrel or library. Most of all, theirs will be the first class not to study anatomy in person. Is this a good idea? Not necessarily. The opinion in this article is that it’s probably unnecessary and certainly detrimental to doctors’ education.
