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. Vivian Ndukwe, RN from Melbourne, OUM Class of 2012

The best way to improve my career is to go into medicine. I could have gone to a local uni, but I chose OUM because I have the flexibility of studying at home and interacting with other people online. Phillip Denning, RN, from Sydney, OUM Class of 2016

With the course structure and support network of OUM, I am going to make my goal of becoming a physician. A good physician. Paris Pearce, Paramedic from Mackay, OUM Class of 2016
