Is there a possibility of studying medicine or other health care courses through distance learning?

In this age of technology, colleges and universities have taken advantage of the opportunities particular to offering programs of study to a global population. While many institutions offer degrees that can be completed on line, there many that cannot. Many or most all programs within the medical, heath, or allied health areas, where clinical skills are required; the answer is no. Where there is a clinical portion; the individual must be present at the college or university he/she is enrolled, or at an affiliate institution that has an articulation with the home school. It is important when looking at online programs of study to recognize the difference between, ground courses (on campus attendance) Web enhanced courses( some classroom time, and some INTERNET time), and online courses (totally through the web). So in essence, an individual may have the opportunity to take strictly lecture courses online, while clinical courses must be taken on campus. Viper1
