Abstract

Recently, interest in creating curriculum in telemedicine for medical students, nurses, and most other health professionals has spiked because of the healthcare industry's rapid shift to providing care via telemedicine as a means of infection control due to the Covid-19 pandemic [1, 2]. This commentary describes the initial medical student and resident training in telemedicine at the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) a half century ago.
