OUM MD Program

OUM’s program is a rigorous full-scale medical school curriculum based on Australian, Canadian, New Zealand, Samoan, and US medical education standards.

LET’S TALK

The Curriculum

Our unique approach delivers the pre-clinical curriculum in live, interactive virtual classrooms so that students may study from their home communities. As with traditional medical schools, clinical rotations occur on-site at select teaching hospitals and clinics.

Curriculum Details

Where You Plan to Practice Determines Your Pathway

There are two entry points to the MD Program: The Standard Pathway or USMLE Pathway, depending on where the student wishes to practice in the future.

  • The Standard Pathway is for students who plan to practice medicine in countries other than the United States.
  • The USMLE Pathway is for students who intend to practice in the United States, which means they must pass the United States Medical Licensing Exam (USMLE).
  • While curriculum content is the same for both Pathways, exam requirements are different at the close of the pre-clinical and clinical curriculum.
  • Standard Pathway students complete the MD Program in 4 to 4.5 years, and USMLE Pathway students complete the Program in 4.5 to 5 years.
