The COVID-19 pandemic changed nearly every aspect of our personal and professional lives, including education and training in transfusion medicine. We have implemented virtual learning and adapted in-person rotations to meet social distancing guidelines. As we look back on the adjustments made in the last year, we realize that the COVID-19 pandemic has already influenced the future landscape of education and training in transfusion medicine. In this session, we will share successful strategies utilized in both physician and technologist training programs. We will address the challenges faced and outcome data associated with these adaptations to traditional instruction. Finally, we will discuss which modifications have proven advantageous and which may outlive pandemic restrictions.
