Abstract or project description

Swetha is going to conduct a study using primary data collection to collect quantitative and qualitative understandings of what the transition to telemedicine looked like for cardiologists during the Covid-19 pandemic. She is beginning her final paper with a literature review of the existing data on telemedicine and convenience to patients and providers, and then she will analyze responses from a self-designed survey instrument to understand the relevant experiences of her study sample, collected via snowball sampling. Over the course of this project Swetha will refine her skills in reviewing literature and writing an academic-style paper. And, she will learn how to analyze preliminary qualitative and quantitative data efficiently and create an effective mixed-methods survey instrument.
