This Community's Medical College: How advances in pedagogy and technology, and the pandemic, have shaped medical education in the 21st century

For much of the past century medical education has conformed to a template laid out in 1910 by Abraham Flexner and was heavily reliant on lectures, laboratory exercises and clinical experiences in urban hospitals. In recent decades some innovative medical schools, including The Commonwealth Medical College (now Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine) have moved past this model through embracing active learning, new educational technologies and community-based clinical experiences. The COVID pandemic forced all medical schools to pivot to embrace online learning, telemedicine and other technologies in ways that are likely to inform medical education in the long-term.
