COVID-19 Infographics

Residency education has been disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Programs in pandemic status, as designated by the ACGME, have substantially modified or suspended traditional educational activities to adhere to physical distancing practices and allow residents to focus on patient care.

Dr. Karen Law, Emory Internal Medicine (IM) Residency Program Director, envisioned meet this educational need by disseminating infographics via residency program social media accounts (Instagram:, Twitter: @JenniferSpicer4). Caroline Coleman, current Emory medical student and incoming Emory IM resident, organized the effort and designed the infographics under the mentorship of Jennifer Spicer, MD, MPH.

We harnessed the enthusiasm and availability of medical students by recruiting them to create COVID-19 educational materials, and ensured the accuracy of the disseminated information by having a fellow or faculty member peer-review all infographic content. This allowed the electronic dissemination of easily digestible, up-to-date, and peer-reviewed information on COVID-19 to Emory IM residents.
