**This BPER round is co-hosted by the Centre for Faculty Development at St. Michael’s Hospital, Continuing Professional Development, Faculty of Medicine at the University of Toronto, and the Wilson Centre**

Physical distancing measures created urgent need for virtual care across our system.  However, formal training in virtual care is not necessarily included in the formal curricula during residency training nor is it always a part of continuing education. During this session, a panel of experts will describe the development of an education program that combines education science and theories of expertise to support practicing family physicians to provide comprehensive primary care virtually. The group will discuss 1) how to adapt education in order to increase the readiness and capacity of physicians to provide virtual care 2) the role of assessment in high-quality online education and 3) the importance of evaluation in the design and implementation of adaptive education.
