When the COVID 19 pandemic forced medical schools to transition to remote learning, many schools learned what OUM has known for some time: that the didactic portion of a medical school curriculum can effectively be taught online. Even before COVID, traditional medical schools were moving towards high-quality electronic teaching material.

In addition to Gross Anatomy, a good portion of laboratory work involves acquiring skills to collect and analyze raw data from graphs, blood work, and other Pathology results. To develop these skills, OUM students receive simulated lab assignments during the course of each pre-clinical module, completed and posted for online discussion with the instructor and classmates.
