Keeping Medical School Students Engaged using
Telehealth during the COVID-19 Pandemic
Meet The Team
Zachary Coopee OMS III
I am fortunate to have the opportunity to serve as an academic scholar at NYITCOM and put my biomedical engineering and coding skills to work. I saw the need to get our medical students back on track and was able to make TeleMedstudent a reality.
Todd Cohen MD
I felt compelled to find a way for medical students to continue their education and clerkships during the COVID-19 pandemic. I created a method of dual video chat integration which traingulates communication between the physician, medical students, and the patient. I re-directed our engineering scholar and robotics team to help develop the system.
As a first year medical student at NYITCOM, I am enjoying working with Dr. Cohen's team and Zachary Coopee to help develop this novel remote medical student teaching platform.
As a first-year medical student at NYITCOM, I am utilizing biomedical engineering and programming skills learned during my undergraduate education at the University of Virginia. I enjoy working with this unique team on fascinating and important research endeavors.
