The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic of 2020 has had profound impacts on medical education, both domestic and abroad. In this consensus paper from the American College of Academic International Medicine, we systematically discuss the impact of the pandemic both immediately and long term on international medical education, bedside teaching, procedural teaching, didactics and curriculum, accreditation, and mental health of medical teachers and learners. We discuss some strategies that have been implemented to mitigate the negative impact of the pandemic while providing reasons for hope in the future. The following core competencies are addressed in this article: Practice-based learning, Patient care, Interpersonal and communication skills, Systems-based practice
