While the pandemic keeps most classes online, UAA's Medical Lab Science program finds new ways to help students learn and share their research.

At UAA's Dietetics and Nutrition program, faculty and students are developing creative ways to advance their field and promote community well-being in Alaska.
During a recent class at the Alaska Rock Gym, students in Physical Education & Recreation A148 practiced the fundamentals of indoor sport climbing, from knots and rope handling to bouldering and descent techniques.
During their first in-person lab of the semester, UAA Medical Assisting Program students learned how to sterilize medical equipment. While most courses have shifted to alternate delivery this fall, in-person labs are still being offered for some fields in which hands-on learning is considered critical.
Because of its hands-on nature, the Physical Therapy Assistant program is one of the few UAA courses that have continued in-person delivery through the summer with smaller-than-usual groups, masks and health screenings before each class.
