The fifth year offers all of the most technically challenging courses of the program. Fifth year students are challenged to develop their skills to a level of excellence that we believe makes our graduates the most skilled and most educated new graduates in the world.
OAoPO believes that if a student has reached the fifth year, then the student has more than demonstrated his/her ability to perform at a high level. Therefore, Year 5 is about consolidating and perfecting skills, as well as personalizing each student’s own individual approach. The emphasis of the year is on honing and perfecting clinical skills and developing a high level of anatomical and physiological knowledge.
We highly recommend that students choose a specialty program to pursue by the time they reach the end of their fifth year.
All materials and books are provided in our online classroom. Almost all material for the duration of 5 years will be provided in an online format as to enable students access dozens of resources and materials whenever they need to.
