As e-learning technologies improve, graduate-level distance learning programs are becoming stronger than ever. Want to see what your classmates look like? Then schedule a video conference call to work on a group project. These types of interactions are becoming more and more popular among today's online degree programs. Don't have time to sit in a classroom? Then watch the lecture online on your laptop.
There are obviously pro and cons to online education. However, for busy doctors and other healthcare professionals, the pros may far outweigh the cons. This may be especially true if you don't live in a major city where you may have access to executive and evening programs (such as an executive MBA). You'll have to decide after you do your research.
