COVID-19 has had profound effects on the financial stability of academic institutions, resident training, and patient care. Candrice Heath, MD (@DrCandriceHeath) talks to Erin Boh, MD, and Dirk Elston, MD, about emergency response plans in the academic setting as well as how institutions have been using teledermatology and managing resident education.

“Our institution is doing quite well because we’ve actually jumped headlong and feetfirst into COVID research. . . . Our research dollars have increased double percentwise because of that," Dr. Boh said.
