It was the collaborative talents of faculty, staff and the SOM Learning to Teach students (fourth- years who are in a teaching track) who made the virtual clinical skills assessments come to fruition. The CSSC was one of the first clinical skills programs in the northeast to develop these cutting-edge programs, according to Ms. Yamulla.  The CSSC staff continues to find additional ways to subsidize clinical learning at a time when students need it the most.

The CSSC was also pleased to be able to donate personal protective equipment (PPE) including N95 respirator masks, to help those on the COVID-19 front line at Westchester Medical Center.
