Harvard University is issuing certificates for anybody who passes one or more of the same online courses that are also taken by incoming students prior to starting their Harvard Medical School curriculum and used by the institution’s faculty to “flip” their classrooms. The courses make up the university’s new “HMX” program, consisting of online instruction for medical education. The HMX classes each last 10 weeks and cover physiology, immunology, genetics and biochemistry. Rather than using “traditional lectures and PowerPoint slides,” these programs introduce real-world scenarios, animation, concept videos, notetaking guides, assessments, interactive components and videos that take participants into clinical settings. The price of each course is $800, or $1,000 when taken two at a time, or $1,800 when all four are taken simultaneously.
