FACULTY AND LEADERSHIP

OUM faculty represent a variety of countries, including  Australia, New Zealand, and the United States. Faculty adhere to a rigorous set of educational objectives, and work collaboratively to deliver an internationally-applicable medical curriculum. Given the diversity of the faculty, as well as the student body, there is considerable focus on the various licensing standards and requirements of the countries where graduates intend to practice.

Academic and Clinical Advisers

Academic Advisers lend guidance during the preclinical phase. He/she is the student’s primary contact regarding academic status and progression through the program. Academic Advisers are available to help students overcome impediments inherent in a distance learning environment. During the clinical phase, the Clinical Advisers lend similar support. As issues arise during an actual rotation, or when a student needs counsel about future rotations or applying for post-graduate training, the Clinical Adviser is available to offer guidance.

Experienced faculty, MDs, MBBSs, and PhDs, deliver the preclinical curriculum in live interactive online lectures offered four days a week. OUM’s innovative approach to medical education offers various opportunities to engage with students:

  • Become an online instructor, guiding students through the curriculum, responding to inquiries, assigning case presentations, and directing student discussion boards. (Online basic science instruction is always in demand.)
  • Advocate with physician colleagues to arrange clinical rotations at accredited teaching hospitals.
  • Facilitate ongoing review and revision to OUM’s problem-based learning cases.
  • Act as role-models to OUM students, serving as physician mentors, sharing clinical experience and patient scenarios, also evaluating student relationships with patients, colleagues, and other physicians.
  • Guide OUM students through their medical school journey as an Academic or Clinical Adviser.
