"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 , 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"
