Keywords:COVID-19, Online Courses, Online resources, Medical education, Medical student, web workshops, online platforms, quarantine

The Latin America countries are particularly affected by their lack of resources and the time when medical students return to the universities is lengthening. Meanwhile the use of online platforms to resume the classes and the variety of online courses to complement the learning seems promising and should be more widely disseminated.
