On-Campus Sessions 

EMPH students meet face-to-face twice each semester— once at the beginning and again at the end of the term. These Friday through Sunday on-campus sessions are scheduled well in advance to minimize interruptions to work schedules. The on-campus sessions are an academic requirement of the program and students must be able to attend classes on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.
