Fast Adaptation From a Fitness Studio
TruFusion is the local fitness studio that Rachelle and I joined a little over three weeks ago. We love the studio but stopped going to classes a week ago due to the virus situation, and they decided to shutter their locations not long after that. Today I got an email from them sharing that they’re already starting online classes on Wednesday. Now that’s fast! They provided members like me with a login and password to their website, and so far it lists 4 online classes starting tomorrow afternoon: 2 flow yoga classes and 2 pilates classes. The local studio was running up to 240 classes a week (65+ different types of classes in 5 different rooms). So they might be able to add more online classes as well. I hope they do. Of course not all classes can be done from home since they require equipment, but a lot of their workouts could be adapted for online instruction. I especially hope they add a yin yoga class since that was among my favorites. I’m impressed to say the least. I’m sharing this because I think it’s a beautiful example of a positive adaptation under trying circumstances. Read Fast Adaptation From a Fitness Studio by Steve Pavlina

CONCLUSION: Use of VR facility tours as an alternative to in-person tours of affiliate training facilities during a residency interview day is a viable and innovative option that can save time and money and favorably impact the applicant's impression of the program. More research is necessary to assess whether VR tours can replace in-person tours at the main teaching site, however, while social distancing measures are in place, VR tours may become necessary for programs moving forward.

Authors: Roberts V, Malone K, Moore P, Russell-Webster T, Caulfield R Abstract Our personal views about the challenges of continuing to deliver peer teaching during a pandemic. We are a group of 4th year medical students who are part of a student society which has delivered structured, highly formulaic peer-led teaching sessions for the past three years. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the reduced access to our normal clinical teaching highlighted the importance of peer-led teaching sessions. We wanted to continue with our peer-taught sessions but knew we would have to devise a new format to make our teaching accessi...
