July 15, 2021

Telehealth, defined as the use of technology to deliver health care at a distance, has become an increasingly important and commonly used tool for delivering care to patients. Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, providers’ use of telehealth in teaching hospitals was growing steadily. Yet there was a lack of consensus on the competencies needed to provide high quality and equitable telehealth care. To meet this need, the AAMC, together with the AAMC Telehealth Advisory Committee, recently released Cross-Continuum Competencies in Telehealth. This webinar provided an introduction to these competencies and engaged the attendees in an interactive discussion about the barriers and benefits of integrating them across academic medicine. The competencies and accompanying report, Telehealth Competencies Across the Learning Continuum, are final and free to access on the AAMC website.
