While this option, or should we say opportunity, is fairly new, some students are sceptical about studying medicine online and if it’s even possible. The short answer is “yes, it is possible, and it works perfectly fine”. But you are not here for the short answer, so let us explain.
Doctors and dentists will teach this flexible and full-time programme. It is designed specifically for online students, with schedules and curriculums to ensure the smoothest learning experience.
Students will have video seminars using Zoom or Google Classroom, where they will have the opportunity to cooperate and reach out to their tutors.
Attending the classes as scheduled is compulsory. Absences must be compensated with a lesson outside the regular schedule.
Live lectures will be recorded, so you can always go back and review the material. This is exactly where the online portal mentioned above comes in handy. The portal is loaded with all kinds of study materials to help you prepare and ace the exams.
The examination sessions will also be online, and you will need to have a web camera. Exams will be Multiple choice questions (MCQ) and oral discussions. This will help teachers assess your understanding of the subjects learned throughout the duration of the semester.
