March 30, 2020

The Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) released Interim Guidance on Medical Students’ Participation in Direct Patient Contact Activities: Principles and Guidelines. The current guidance says, "Unless there is a critical health care workforce (HCW) need locally, we strongly suggest that medical students not be involved in any direct patient care activities for the next two weeks, through April 13, 2020."

In places with a critical local HCW need, the document outlines principles and guidelines for deciding how to include medical students in direct patient care.
