Report profiles OUM’s student body

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.
