Hi all.

I am interested in knowing how your program has been affected by the pandemic.  I am especially interested in academic medical centers and psychology internships.  Especially interested in solutions.  We have a situation where one of our community clinics has halted trainee involvement for the time being.  Many clinical operations on our main campus have been curtailed.  We are making progress in using more telehealth connections in those instances where patients or trainees cannot come to the facility.  We are fortunate to have an administration which is sensitive to our concerns for patient care and training, as well as a very robust telehealth network at The University of Kansas Medical Center.
