At FLHCON, faculty are committed to a student centered learning environment and provides opportunities to engage all learning styles.  Specifically, students are required to complete a variety of pre-class learning assignments to prepare for classroom instruction and activities.  FLHCON uses the Carnegie rule of thumb which indicates that for every hour of classroom time, students can expect 2 hours of outside work.  This outside work consists of reading, audio/video lectures to supplement the reading assignments, and various homework assignments.  In concert with lecture, class time focuses on the development of knowledge through active learning strategies like discussion, problem sets, case studies, group activities, or experiential learning.

Students in the program attend classes and start participating in clinical rotations in the first semester, which will give them an opportunity to apply knowledge and skills obtained in classroom and laboratory into practice immediately.
