During COVID-19 pandemia, orthopedic ward of Shariati Hospital continued its work as the refferral ward for trauma patients. As an educational center with undergrad and postgrad medical students, we were forced to acutely change our policies and the ward workflow in a way to limit the danger of disease transmission and continue education and giving medical service at the same time. Here we reported our strategies that were adopted in our center to continue educational process as efficient as possible.
