The use of telemedicine in clinical care has grown significantly in the last few years and has only increased during the COVID-19 pandemic. Given that many physicians will be expected to deliver virtual care moving forward, it is important for medical students to gain exposure via this modality during their clinical training. Many medical schools are actively working to integrate students into telemedicine. This article aims to provide guidance for readers incorporating medical students in telemedicine visits at an institutional or departmental level. This article covers essential topics such as coordinating key stakeholders, conducting needs assessments, addressing technological or software considerations, and creating appropriate workflows for students and physicians.
