The Academic Medical
Programs … USAT
does offer some distance learning modules in basic medical sciences;
however, not for the Doctor of Medicine degree program. USAT
recognizes that most applicants for the 5th year program may hold
full or part time employment during their studies, usually in a related field.
The 5th year program is structured so as to permit the
continued part time employment of the student while completing the program
requirements, and such that minimal disruption of either employment or study is
anticipated or is likely to result from the enrolment.
Students may also apply for a simultaneous graduate degree program
leading to the MS, MPH, NMD, or other degree within the framework of the 5th
year program, and which is likely to be complimentary to the overall academic
program of the student.
