OUM’s MD is not abbreviated. Our medical degree program is a complete and rigorous curriculum based mainly on US and Australian medical education models, with special influence from Samoa, our home country. The difference is OUM’s virtual interactive delivery of its pre-clinical curriculum. Our hybrid approach enables students to complete the pre-clinical modules in live, real-time virtual classrooms while remaining in their home communities. As with traditional medical schools, once OUM students complete their pre-clinical modules, clinical rotations occur on-site at select teaching hospitals and clinics.
