The COVID-19 pandemic has forced medical schools and clinicians to transition swiftly to working online, where possible . During this time, final-year medical students at King's College London, England, have received some of their general practice teachings in the form of virtual tutor groups . The predominant feature of such groups is online patient simulations, which provide students a valuable experience to help gain insight into current clinical practice amid the pandemic and inform how their practices as incoming junior doctors would continue . Even in the absence of face-to-face teaching and clinical placements, students have been able to hone their medical knowledge and soft skills through these virtual, simulated consultations . They have been exposed to a new consultation style while in a safe and collaborative learning space . Here, we explore how medical students have benefited from these virtual tutor groups and how similar small-group online teaching opportunities can add value to the medical curriculum in the future.
