John Patrick University of Health and Applied Sciences offers a hybrid learning environment where both online and on-site instruction is required. Students receive a secure username and password to access the online campus where they can manage their student account and attend classes. Students attend course lectures by watching videos that can be viewed any time of day as many times as the student wishes. Classes also have a required class meeting each week at a scheduled date and time administered as an online meeting.
On-site instruction is required each semester for one week called boot camp week. Students come to campus for guest lectures, lectures from faculty, student project presentations, group activities, tests, and lab exercises.
John Patrick University of Health and Applied Sciences’s campus consists of administrative offices, classroom and computer lab space, a lobby and kitchenette area, and a library. The instructional facility is well-lit, air-conditioned, has free wireless internet, and has adequate seating, computer, and audio visual equipment to provide students with an effective educational environment.
Computers with treatment planning software required for classes are available to students studying remotely through a remote desktop connection.
