How Does the OUM Selection & Interview Process Work?

Once you have successfully submitted your online application, your Admissions Counselor will review all your material and make a recommendation to the Admissions Panel.

If you are selected for an interview, you will meet via Zoom with faculty members who sit on the University’s Admissions Selection Committee. This interview focuses on personal qualities and attributes deemed to be essential to both the study and practice of medicine, based on internationally accepted criteria for medical school selection.

Our Admissions Panel takes a holistic approach to every application, considering the overall quality of an applicant’s academic performance, together with the demonstrated intellectual curiosity, discipline, and empathy that are characteristic of successful medical practitioners.

The official decision regarding acceptance is typically made within a week after the interview. Applicants are notified of the decision via email.
