    What a wonderful, well-written piece! The justaposition between medical education during medieval times (where an instructor would read aloud from an original text) and the potential for change via a paradigm shift in this “blank state” post-COVID era, whether it be a true “flipped classroom”, via guest speakers, or completely recreating in-person learning online is truly something to think about.
