COVID-19 curriculum

A team of students from Harvard Medical School, including a number of HST MD and MD-PhD students, responded quickly to organize grassroots efforts against the Covid-19 pandemic. They identified two main opportunities for impact: activism and education.  Their activism effort involves coordinating opportunities for students to provide on-the-ground help in both the community and clinical settings. Education efforts have resulted in a public-facing social media campaign (see @FutureMDvsCOVID) and in the rapid development of a free curriculum for anyone in the biomedical community interested in learning about Covid-19.

The curriculum is available here:
