Abstract

The 2020 COVID-19 pandemic has severely disrupted paediatric undergraduate bedside clinical training. Facing an uncertain future, we need to be able to adapt to the variable effects of the pandemic on bedside training. During severe conditions, no bedside training is possible, while limited bedside training is possible during less severe conditions. We propose a learning and teaching model for undergraduate  paediatric clinical training during and beyond the COVID-19 pandemic to facilitate bedside clinical training in order to maximise students’ acquisition of clinical competencies.
