Discover Oceania University of Medicine

Oceania University of Medicine (OUM) was founded in the South Pacific island nation of Samoa to address its serious physician shortage, a situation which is today faced globally.

We combine today’s best e-learning capabilities with traditional hands-on clinical training to bring medical education to students in their home communities — helping them overcome distance and professional barriers to achieve their dream of practicing medicine.
