A Dermatologist’s journal during the COVID-19 pandemic: week 8

May 4 – 10, 2020

After 2 months of being closed, my clinic will be opening again on May 18. I have been preparing for the past month. It’s not just the newly acquired disinfecting gadgets and personal protective equipment, but it’s also rearranging the physical set-up, determining the flow of patient interaction, and grounding the venues for telemedicine to keep both clinic staff and patients safe.

Although I am home, I have been working tirelessly to prepare for the re-opening. On top of that, with medical information literally zooming in with the speed of light, reading and participating in academic webinars are a must for us doctors. Webinar fatigue? Yes! But we gotta be ready!
