ABSTRACT
For MD/DO-PhD trainees, who pursue an extended training pathway with formal learning in both clinical and research settings, the COVID-19 pandemic has brought a unique set of educational challenges. In particular, the pandemic has added strain on the already challenging transitions from medical school to graduate training and back. This is on top of the impact felt more broadly by medical and graduate trainees. Such a strain may increase attrition in an already leaky physician-scientist. workforce pipeline [1]. Here, we provide a trainee perspective outlining the effects the pandemic has had on the various stages of the predoctoral dual-degree training paradigm and highlight opportunities for intervention to aid MD/DO-PhD trainees.
ABSTRACT
Radiologists are proficient in differentiating between chest x-ray radiographs (CXRs) with and without symptoms of pneumonia, but have found it more challenging to differentiate CXRs with COVID-19 pneumonia symptoms from those without.
ABSTRACT
The COVID-19 pandemic has altered human behaviour in profound ways, prompting some to question whether the associated economic and social impacts might outweigh disease impacts. This fits into a burgeoning ecological paradigm suggesting that for both predator–prey and parasite–host interactions, non-consumptive effects (avoidance) can be orders of magnitude stronger than consumptive effects (sickness and death). Just as avoidance of predators and parasites imposes substantial costs on prey and hosts, altered behaviour to reduce the transmission of COVID-19 has impacted human fitness and wellbeing. But the effects of infectious disease avoidance do not stop there; non-consumptive effects of predators and parasites often trigger cascading indirect effects in natural systems. Similarly, shifts in human behaviour due to COVID-19 have triggered myriad indirect effects on species and the environment, which can be positive, negative or neutral. We urge researchers to recognize that the environmental impacts associated with lockdowns are indirect effects of the virus. In short, the global response to COVID-19 suggests that the non-consumptive effects of a pathogen, and resulting indirect
