Student & Graduate Comments
"OUM has given me a sense of autonomy to think on my own two feet. It allowed me to look deep inside to discover why I really wanted to become a physician. When I finish my residency next year, I’ll be going into my own private practice."
"I love the international experience."
"I felt OUM gave me a lot of flexibility with my demanding schedule as a practicing IM PA when I enrolled. I was able to continue to work for the first two years in medical school. OUM also helped me with coordinating my rotations in my home town of Chicago which was fantastic since I had a young child at the time. OUM kept the lines of communication flowing very well throughout medical school and were really concerned about my own needs. I also enjoyed the integrated approach to medicine which included comprehensive case studies based on the specialties."
"The fact that you have given a 40-year old the ability to become a good physician someday would have NEVER happened otherwise."
"What I like about OUM is that I can 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. I have been able to do a lot of procedures here in Samoa that I would not have had the chance to do if I was at home in Australia. Yesterday, I sutured a wound all by myself, just with the doctor standing there watching. It was my first time suturing, and I did it!"
I’m a family nurse practitioner, and thought I had a pretty good exposure to the sciences in nursing school. Physicians need so much more, and OUM brings it to you. Medical school isn’t easy, and there were times I didn’t think I could make it. OUM’s teachers, advisors, and faculty are great—they give you the support and resources you need to succeed. The best thing is that I use that knowledge every day when I see my patients, so it’s a win-win for everyone."
