Distance Learning

We have found that the program can be delivered very successfully to participants at a distance through web-based conferencing. In evaluations of the program there has been no difference in the ratings of participants who took the course at our main site in Worcester and those who took it at a remote location.

There are two ways of participating in the course, by being part of a site with other participants, or as an individual using your own computer in your home or office.  Sites have the advantage of allowing easier interaction with other participants, but individuals can interact at certain points by using a providedconference call number.

To be an effective group site, it helps to have at least four people for the many interactive elements of the course. Interested sites should apply as soon as possible. UMass Chan Medical School can assist in regional marketing efforts. As people inquire about the course, we will refer them to the nearest site. Sites are required to accept students interested in completing the program provided their room capacity has not been exceeded.
Each site will designate one person to be the contact for the course locally and to interact with the main site in Worcester.
