American accreditation authorities do not accredit non-US medical schools. OUM is accredited by the Philippine Accrediting Association for Schools, Colleges and Universities (PAASCU), which is an international accrediting body recognized by the US Department of Education’s National Committee on Foreign Medical Education and Accreditation. In 2020, PAASCU reaccredited OUM for five more years. Since the US government has established that PAASCU evaluates institutions in the manner in which US schools are reviewed, OUM is considered comparable to those accredited in the US.
