Abstract

With the rising numbers of COVID – 19 patients, universities are moving toward virtual teaching platforms. It is acceptable for lectures and discussions. But conducting ward classes in virtual platforms is practically difficult. We initiated hybrid ZOOM ward classes with a simple method of using mobile phones at the University Surgical Unit of the Colombo South Teaching Hospital. Feasibility and the student's perception of the effectiveness of such teaching were evaluated. Clinical teaching using hybrid ZOOM is feasible. Mobile phones provide satisfactory audio and video experience. The majority of the students are satisfied with the hybrid ZOOM ward classes.
