During the COVID-19 pandemic, the teaching of health sciences (i.e., medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, midwifery, and nursing) has changed dramatically. Since face-to-face learning was cancelled in the countries severely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, most universities implemented online methods of teaching–learning–evaluation to deliver educational content to undergraduate and graduate students. However, especially during a time when there is a great need of well-trained personnel to join the healthcare workforce, the absence of clinical experience might negatively impact on the future prospects of students in the various health science fields.
Apart from the students enrolled in the study of health sciences, the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic has drastically changed the practice of medicine in hospitals worldwide. Some patients suffered directly from COVID-19, whereas others experienced the negative impact of the pandemic on the management of their chronic disorders.
This Special Issue aims to explore the theme of “Health Sciences Before, During and After the COVID-19 Pandemic”. Original research articles, short communications, narrative or systematic reviews, meta-analyses, and other submission types dealing with all aspects of health science education during the COVID-19 pandemic are encouraged. In addition, we welcome manuscripts focused on pre-pandemic health science education, as well as future prospects regarding the evolution of this field. Moreover, we welcome the submission of interdisciplinary research (original articles, reviews, case reports, etc., including non-clinical investigations) focused on clinical medicine both before and during the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic. Papers related to clinical medicine but not directly related to the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic are also accepted.
