4 What I liked about OUM is that I could continue to work part-time and continue my studies in medicine. The ability to combine my studies with the cases I was seeing in the hospital really enhanced my education. Dr. V.N.

An Innovative Approach to Medical Education Oceania University of Medicine, founded in the South Pacific Island nation of Samoa, blends hands-on clinical experience with online teaching to help aspiring physicians overcome distance, personal and professional barriers to achieve their dream. The opportunity to complete the preclinical phase of medical studies without having to stop working and leave families and support systems, is one reason why Oceania University of Medicine’s MD program is attractive to students currently working in healthcare as well as other professions. While the students’ work experiences are diverse, their visions are identical. The school’s flexible distance-learning curriculum is ideal for individuals with work and family commitments but wish to become physicians. Similar to traditional medical schools, once OUM students successfully complete their preclinical study, clinical rotations occur on site at teaching hospitals. The OUM MD degree program is a full-scale, rigorous medical school curriculum, based largely on American and Australian medical education models. The program is typically completed in four-and-a-half to five years, but if students need more time due to work or family matters, OUM’s flexibility allows for that. Only OUM has an MD program that allows professionals to continue working through the preclinical years.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
