Objective: To assess the impact of the Urology Collaborative Online Video Didactic (COViD) lecture series series on resident knowledge as a supplement to resident education during the coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic. Methods: One hundred thirty-nine urology residents were voluntarily recruited from 8 institutions. A 20-question test, based on 5 COViD lectures, was administered before and after watching the lectures. Pre- and posttest scores (percent correct) and score changes (posttest minus pretest score) were assessed considering demographic data and number of lectures watched. Multiple linear regression determined predictors of improved scores. Results: Of residents recruited, 95 and 71 took the pre- and posttests. Median number of lectures watched was 3. There was an overall increase in correct scores from pretest to posttest (45% vs 57%, P < .01). Watching any lectures vs none led to higher posttest scores (60% vs 44%, P < .01) and score changes (+16% vs +1%, P < .01). There was an increase in baseline pretest scores by post-graduate year (PGY) (P < .01); however there were no significant differences in posttest or score changes by PGY. When accounting for lectures watched, PGY, and time between lecture and posttest, being a PGY6 (P = .01) and watching 3-5 lectures (P < .01) had higher overall correct posttest scores. Watching 3-5 lectures led to greater score changes (P < .001-.04). Over 65% of residents stated the COViD lectures had a large or very large impact on their education. Conclusions: COViD lectures improved overall correct posttest scores and increased knowledge base for all resident levels. Furthermore, lectures largely impacted resident education during the coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic.
