Academic Instruction

The resumption of academic instruction on MBKU campuses and clinics will be done in strict compliance with CDC guidelines and local public health directives for the protection of our community.

Didactic/Lecture Instruction

Synchronous and Asynchronous Course Schedule

MBKU will continue to provide instruction with virtual, online content delivery for the Fall Quarter. This material may be delivered both synchronously and asynchronously.

  • If a class is synchronous, it will require your participation and presence online during a specific scheduled time.

  • If material is delivered asynchronously, there will not be a scheduled time to view the material, but the individual course will set expectations on deadlines for your completion of viewing the content on your own.

Specific Directions from Course Instructors

You will be provided with specific directions from the individual programs and course instructors. There may also be an expectation in some courses to participate in smaller online group discussions on material. Please refer to the specific directions from the course instructors for further information.

Laboratory Instruction

Some laboratory instruction will be conducted either on the main campus in Fullerton or at the University Eye Center at Ketchum Health in Anaheim. In order to do this as safely as possible, we will be:

  • Limiting the number of students in each lab and implementing a variety of safety measures to keep everyone as healthy as possible.¬†

  • Providing students with PPE (personal protective equipment) to provide physical barriers to reduce the chance of incidental exposure.

  • Implementing a regimen of sanitizing procedures conducted before, during, and after lab activities to reduce the possibility of surface exposure.

Each lab will provide further directions regarding the expectations of cleaning and safety involved with specific lab experiences.

External Clinical Rotations

External rotations will proceed for all programs.
