Student-FIRST Blended Learning Model

USAHS is a leader in blended learning, a model shown to produce better knowledge outcomes in health education.Alexandre Vallée et. al, “Blended Learning Compared to Traditional Learning in Medical Education: Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis”, Journal of Medical Internet Research, Aug. 8, 2020. With blended learning, you get the best of both worlds: the convenience of online lectures, plus the engagement of in-person practice. Because you’ve learned the material in advance, you’ll be ready to participate in meaningful hands-on class activities with faculty and other students.

High-Tech and High-Touch

“You can go back and watch [the lecture] as many times as you want. Then when you’re in the classroom, you’re able to take what you’ve learned in the lectures and really focus on the hands-on components.”—Morgan L., USAHS student
