The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the face of education for undergraduate and graduate medical trainees . Lectures, clinical clerkships, and testing have all been impacted significantly because of patient care needs and concern for the health and safety of trainees . While traditional teaching strategies have been upended, the challenges posed by the pandemic have also created unique opportunities for trainees . In this article, the authors summarize lessons trainees can learn from the ongoing pandemic in the following areas: public health, disaster preparedness, and resource allocation; reinventing professional and personal roles to meet the needs of the health care system; flexibility in navigating testing, licensure, and certification; appraising scientific evidence quickly and accurately; balancing a physician's call to duty with fear for personal safety; combating moral injury; interprofessional collaboration; and advocating for oneself and colleagues . Focusing on these lessons can help educators steer their efforts to better prepare future physicians for unforeseen challenges that may come up in their personal and professional lives as well as in society as a whole.
