early abstract:

The emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic has forced a change in medical education in Israel. The suspension of the clinical clerkships has set in motion the implementation of online lectures via the Zoom platform. Tutors were able to teach from their wards, still available for urgent patient care, and students were able to learn uninterruptedly and safely in their homes. According to previous studies, learning online can be compatible with recommended learning techniques such as space repetition, which allows students to accumulate knowledge in the most effective way for them according to their learning needs and preferences, which can enhance their learning experience and maintain long-term memory.
