"There are times when I think that our mission is straightforward and simple. Educate and train more Black doctors, and we will save more Black lives. And then, I again come to realize all the obstacles in our way—even more so during this pandemic. At ͼ, we determined early on that our students must be ready for immediate deployment into the field following graduation in May 2020. So, we transitioned back to in-person learning for those aspects of medical training that do not lend themselves to a virtual environment. This required our institution to develop a disciplined COVID-19 testing and contact tracing program, which is still in place today"
