Long COVID presents with persistent symptoms and may occur among patients with COVID-19 regardless of acute episode severity. Recent medical literature has show that 10-30% of COVID survivors experience linger symptoms after the resolution of the initial infection. There will be a large new patient population seeking care for Long COVID over the coming years. Our healthcare system joined physicians, therapists, and other health providers to develop a multi-disciplinary clinic to identify, coordinate and address the needs of COVID long-hauler patients and their families. This symposium will present the development, structure, and implementation of this clinic to provide learners information to assist with the development of efficient and coordinated models of care for Long COVID at their own institutions.
