The University of Vermont is launching itself into the brave new world of Health 3.0.
Back in the last century (1964) when I matriculated at George Washington University I expected to spend almost 40 hours each week for the next two years studying basic science, then returning to my home and spending another 4-6 hours studying for the next day's marathon lectures. With minor modifications this method has remained until most recently.
The school has begun to phase out lectures in favor of what's known as "active learning" and plans to be done with lectures altogether by 2019.
