Use of information, communication, and technology in higher education is known to enhance learning experience. Thoughtful mixing of online and face-to-face activities is identified as blended learning (BL). Owing to its advantages, health professional education programs adapted this method globally. Understanding the concept of BL will be useful for Health Professional Educators (HPEs) in improving learner's engagement. The objective of this article is to introduce the concept of BL in HPE and to discuss its advantages and disadvantages based on available evidence.
