Teaching modalities

Onsite

Subjects taught 100% in person on campus. There will be a notable increase in the number of subjects in this modality. All laboratories and field practices will correspond to this modality, also medical rotations and clinical practices.

Virtual

Subjects taught in virtual mode, either synchronously or asynchronously. 

Hybrid

Face-to-face and virtual sessions with a group in person in the classroom and the rest attending remotely simultaneously, which alternate every week. This modality is supported by our Connected Classrooms.


Connected Classrooms

The Connected Classrooms are innovative learning spaces, equipped with various technological resources, which will allow you to live a more complete and comprehensive academic experience.

In the classes that are developed under the new modality, students will be divided into small groups that will attend face-to-face teaching with their teacher, while the rest participate virtually. Each week the groups will alternate so that everyone has the same experience. No matter where you are, you can interact with the teacher and the rest of your classmates.
