OUM students come from a variety of backgrounds. While the Basic Sciences are foundational to a medical school curriculum, a Science major is not a prerequisite for acceptance to OUM.
As OUM provides Basic Science instruction through its pre-clinical curriculum, the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) and the Graduate Australian Medical School Admissions Test (GAMSAT) are not required.
Applicants must have a:
Bachelor’s degree or higher from an accredited and recognized tertiary institution.
Credit-level degree or GPA of at least 3.0 on a 4.0 scale, or its equivalent.
OUM currently accepts students from Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Samoa, and the United States, where the University has well-established relationships with teaching hospitals and clinics and where it is most knowledgeable of the licensing requirements for international medical graduates (IMGs). This guarantees our students access to their requisite clinical rotations and assures a smoother transition through their hurdle exams into postgraduate training and clinical practice.
English Language Requirement
Since all instruction at OUM is in English, students must be fully fluent in the language. Candidates whose first language is not English may be exempt from this requirement if their degree is from a university whose curriculum is delivered in English. Candidates whose native language is not English may need to demonstrate fluency by submitting testing results from one of the services which evaluate language proficiency.
