Background: Due to the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic, learning institutions were faced with many challenges while transitioning their in-person courses to an online format for teaching, learning, and testing. One of these challenges included the continuation of assessments in a safe but secure manner. Discussion: Professional health programs may need to implement new policies to ensure a fair, safe testing process that maintains exam integrity during remote assessments. We concluded that transitioning to remote assessments for health professional schools posed many challenges. Further studies may elaborate the effectiveness and limitations of the various approaches used for remote assessments by professional health programs during the pandemic.
