Innovation in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Education Post COVID-19

About this Research Topic

Over the past year there has been a shift in the focus and value of education. Extensive adaptations were introduced into the educational environment in order to overcome the inability to perform face to face activities due to COVID-19. Social distancing and safety measures, in addition to the need to speed up the academic year, resulted in the introduction of many new adaptations as a remedy to this temporary situation. 


Given that the global pandemic has arguably shaped our new normal of everyday life, it is inevitable that education too will be reshaped to accommodate the adaptations that were test run during the past year. 


The goal of this Research Topic is to showcase reports on innovative practices within oral and maxillofacial surgery related education as a response to the global situation post pandemic.

This will allow us to evaluate methodologies and identify those that have been successful and those that have failed to serve the educational outcome.


This Research Topic focuses on evaluation of adaptations in oral surgery related education, with special focus on:

- Work highlighting evaluation models, either as a focus of the work or utilized to study other educational innovations

- Studies of the development of interprofessional education during the COVID-19 pandemic

- Solutions for distance learning, online learning, and distributed learning

- Innovative solutions for assessment dilemmas

- Innovative practices in faculty development and/ or support

- Innovative practices in teaching and learning

- Innovative practices in student support


Keywords: COVID-19, Education, Distance Learning, Oral Surgery, Maxillofacial Surgery


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
