Description

Available at our main campus in Kota Damansara, this programme is carefully shaped for those who believe in making a difference in the lives of others through better health by becoming a caring and knowledgeable doctor.

We strive to groom doctors to be lifelong learners who stay aware of technological advances in medicine to ensure the community receives appropriate and effective care.

The programme encompasses three phases. Phase I spans across two years of the programme, where you are exposed to basic medical sciences covering subjects including Anatomy, Biochemistry, Physiology, Pathology, Medical Microbiology and Medical Parasitology, as well as Community Medicine and early clinical exposure in an integrated system approach. In Phase II, you’ll begin your early clinical clerkship with one year of rotational posting in internal medicine, paediatrics, surgery and women’s health.

You gain further knowledge and clinical skills during your senior clerkship in Phase III, which covers two years in various clinical disciplines, namely community based medicine, psychiatry, palliative care and rehabilitation, specialised postings of ophthalmology, otolaryngology, anaesthesiology, dermatology, diagnostic imaging and forensic medicine during your Year 4 of study. In the final year, you will undergo orthopaedics and trauma posting and in preparation of the Final Professional Examinations, you will revisit the four major postings in clinical medicine i.e. internal medicine, paediatrics and neonatology, surgery and women’s health.

Throughout the five years of study, you will also develop your soft skills in communication, social responsibility, team building, critical thinking, problem solving, leadership and management.
