To meet the current and ever-evolving challenges that the coronavirus era presents, BBSH will be offering what we are calling a “hybrid” year for 2020–2021. This is what we are proposing:
1. To accommodate travel restrictions and possible quarantine requirements, students will have the choice to attend Resident Training either in person (where allowed) or simultaneously via live video conferencing.
2. Students will be able to make class-by-class decisions as to whether they will be attending in person (again where allowed) or online. For example, a student may opt to attend online for Class 1 and in person for Class 2.
We are hoping that this new model will ease the uncertainty that the prospect of traveling to attend BBSH classes evokes. Having a choice to tailor the training to meet your states'/countries' travel requirements and restrictions will allow you to engage in your BBSH training without this added stress.
No, our students attend the school from all over the world. They attend the resident training week and go back home until the next training week. Our classes met 5 times a year, approximately 6 weeks apart. In between the resident training weeks all students travel back home.
Tuition is $7,900 and with the extended payment plan, the down payment at the time of application is $1,900, then 10 monthly payments of $600 with no finance charges. There is also a pay in full and partial payment option.
We do not offer scholarships at this time. We offer an extended payment plan that consists of a down payment of $1,900 at the time of application and then 10 monthly payments of $600. There are no finance charges associated with this plan.
All students start in Year-1 regardless of their prior trainings or experience. Each year builds upon the previous one so we are unable to fast track anyone.
We can review your transcript to determine if any of your general education courses are eligible for transfer credit. This will not make the program shorter as it is still a 4 year program. You just may need to take less of the general education online courses. (see the difference between the BS Degree and PS Diploma program below.)
The programs are exactly the same in terms of the resident training and distance learning. The BS degree has additional requirements: (1) 9 general education courses and (2) Anatomy and Physiology II, III, and IV. A&P I is eligible for transfer credit.
We do not have an online training option at this time.
Students must be at last 18 years old and have a high school diploma or equivalent.
Early registration deadline is September 1st but you can register up to Class 1 starts in October. There are distance learning modules due before this therefore we encourage you to enroll before Class 1.
Yes, we are able to enroll students into Class 2. Teachers will assist in providing missed information and the skills taught in Class 1. The tuition is the same.
The program is divided into two sections -- resident training and distance learning. Typically, a student spends 3–5 hours per week on the distance learning modules.
