As a non-traditional medical school, OUM has no “average” student and we’re proud of that diversity. When the University compiles its annual report at the end of each year, we catch a glimpse of the notable career and academic choices our students made prior to medical school. Here is what we learned at the end of 2019:
227 students were enrolled at OUM, 219 graduate-entry students in the MBBS and MD programs and eight students in the Post-Baccalaureate (Post-Bac) program. Six of those Post-Bac students successfully completed the program in 2019 and were approved to begin the MD program in January 2020. The others still have Post-Bac coursework remaining.
18 students graduated with their medical degree in 2019. To date, OUM has 128 graduates amongst the MBBS, MD, and Master of Health Sciences programs.
12 graduates are based in Australia – most have applied for the AMC exams and a few began working in Australian hospitals.
5 graduates are US-based, studying for licensure exams and going through the residency Match process.
1 graduate resides in New Zealand and is preparing to take the United States Medical Licensing Exams.
