Oceania University of Medicine (OUM) is a public-private, for-profit medical school located in the South Pacific in Oceania. The medical school was founded in 2002 and is located on the island nation of Samoa. Oceania University of Medicine blends distance learning and hands-on clinical rotations to help aspiring physicians overcome distance, personal, and professional barriers to achieve their dream. OUM’s MD program is based on a full-scale, rigorous medical school curriculum, which is typically completed in four-and-a-half to five years. Students spend the first half of the program studying basic sciences through a computer-based curriculum delivered by faculty in real-time virtual classrooms and the latter half in hospital-based clinical rotations. OUM students have the best of all worlds – an easy to access, flexible preclinical study program followed by the more traditional clinical rotations arranged in hospitals in a student’s community or at OUM-affiliated hospitals and institutions. The OUM program provides a medical education to those who face distance, personal, and professional challenges, especially those individuals who live in remote areas of the world without a medical school nearby. That was the school’s original mission on the island nation of Samoa, a mission that has flourished.
