Graduate Testimonials

“I appreciated OUM’s flexibility and my clinical rotations, especially learning in Samoa, which was amazing. Gaining hands-on experience in a variety of different areas in Samoa, such as assisting with surgical procedures, performing deliveries, working in emergency, pediatrics and internal medicine departments really allowed me to hone my clinical skills and facilitated my comfort level working in rural and remote settings.”

Sonja Bruin, MBBS, CCFP-EM, Family Physician, OUM Class of 2014 Manitoba, Canada
“I loved being part of the community outreach organized by OUM, the Samoa Rotary Club, and TTM Hospital. We conducted health screenings, medical consults, and identified high risk individuals in the villages. As students, we looked forward to putting our training into practice and being part of a good cause.”

“My advice: enjoy the journey. Medical school is a tough but rewarding experience. Make sure you have a good support system of people around you to keep you motivated and also have interests and hobbies outside of study so you can maintain some form of work-life balance”
