There have been increasing demands for innovative learning and teaching approaches in higher education. Many educators in various fields of study have been teaching their students using deliberate and careful combination of face-to face and online learning processes or blended learning. However, in the field of public health, the use of blended learning seems to be fewer. For public health educators and trainers to maximize the potential of this approach, it could be significant to consider the broad and increasingly expanding scope of public health. Furthermore, studies should be done to identify the factors that drive the achievement of educational outcomes in this field.
