Results
A total of 103 academicians contributed to the survey. Most of the participants were concerned about themselves and their families. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, academicians indicated a permanent change in healthcare system. In addition, they expressed worries about theoretical part of distance education and the effects of distance education on clinical practices.

Conclusions
According to obtained results, academicians in medical sciences reported significant changes occurring not only in providing healthcare services but also in educational aspect, which is a subject of concern.
