Yes, during the first half of the curriculum, but not during the final nine terms (clinical rotations). The opportunity for students to work a full schedule during the first two years (preclinical terms, 1-12) is one feature that sets OUM apart from a traditional medical school setting. For part-time students who continue working during the first 12 modules, a commitment of approximately 40-50 hours per week is required for research, study, class attendance, and meetings with one’s advisor and mentor. During these preclinical terms, students typically revise and reduce their work schedules to prepare for the last two years of clinical clerkship training. Once the clinical clerkships begin, the schedule of an OUM student is the same as that of any medical student — subject to the uncertainties of hospital and physician scheduling — and requiring 24/7 availability in order to complete clinical rotations and maximize the experience.
