Students attending virtual residency take advantage of innovative social networking technology that allows them to participate in learning activities through virtual conferences and dynamic online classrooms. They will also be placed in a small cohort of students, which will foster even more opportunities for them to connect with their classmates and faculty. Just as the face-to-face residency requires students to attend scheduled seminars, they will need to attend online events that are scheduled throughout the virtual residency. However, unlike face-to-face residencies that require students to attend four full days of seminars, the synchronous virtual residency seminars are scheduled over the course of nine partial days throughout the month.
