Primary Care Via Telemedicine
Physicians and healthcare professionals across the globe are adapting to the “new normal” during these unprecedented times of COVID-19. Many physicians had to make the move to telemedicine vs. the in-person visit. This lecture will address on-demand technologies and self-assessment tools in the primary care setting.
