Change has been the keyword to describe the dramatic and rapid impact that the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020 has had on the medical education system worldwide. As a result, there has been a clear necessity for learners, faculty/teachers, leaders, health-care organizations, and academic institutions to “react,” “pivot,” and “reimagine” the system to address the numerous challenges that we have had not only to face in the short term but also to ensure that functions and processes are ready to be reinitiated to move ahead. The rapidly evolving circumstances of the pandemic have caused considerable uncertainty about almost everything, and as such, it has been difficult to anticipate what the future will be like, let alone the intermediate term. The environment of change and uncertainty has created the opportunity for many to be creative and innovative as they strive to support learners, faculty/teachers, health-care organizations, and academic institutions within the ever-changing reality we have found ourselves within.
