The Faculty of Medicine offers two degree programmes, an undergraduate Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) and a postgraduate Master of Medicine in Intensive Care (MMedIC). In addition, FoM administers an elective programme which sees international students from medical schools around the world come to Samoa to learn and experience a different health system and its associated challenges.

The MBBS degree is six years in duration and aims to provide students with an undergraduate degree in medicine that will produce broadly educated, knowledgeable and competent graduates capable of practicing medicine safely, professionally and effectively as doctors in the health context of Samoa and the Pacific.

The MMedIC is four years in duration and aims to produce clinicians with the knowledge and competencies in practicing medicine safely, professionally and effectively as intensive care physicians in the health context of Samoa and the Pacific. Physicians in intensive care will be able to build expertise and competencies to better recognize and appropriately manage patients with established or impending organ failure in Samoa and the Pacific.

Students are accepted into the medical elective programme for a minimum period of two and maximum of eight weeks. The available rotations are Internal Medicine, General Surgery and Orthopedics, Pediatric, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Accident, Emergency and Acute Primary Care, Anaesthetic and Intensive Care, Mental Health  and Rural Medicine.
