Virtual Away Rotations for Aspiring Otolaryngologists to Combat the Impact of COVID-19 on the Match
During the COVID-19 pandemic, audition rotations were cancelled, limiting fourth year students' exposure to the breadth and depth of otolaryngology. The authors propose a virtual rotation for fourth-year medical students applying to otolaryngology. As a result of this study, virtual rotators were able to practice their outpatient management skills, observe a variety of otolaryngologic conditions, and form relationships with attending physicians. Virtual rotations, they concluded, could increase equity and access to high-quality otolaryngology training.
