We read with interest the work of Perron et al evaluating the use of online synchronous clinical communications teaching during the COVID-19 pandemic.1 As 5th year medical students in the UK we understand the challenges of delivering online synchronous tutorials. Immediate innovation is needed to ensure that medical education is not compromised. Therefore, we praise Perron et al for their pressing interest in this issue.
