DESCRIPTION

A Bachelor's Degree in Medicine
Have you always wanted to make a difference in the lives of others? Do you envision a future where your decisions help shape the very outcome of important surgeries? If you answered yes, then you are on the right path to becoming a caring and knowledgeable doctor in the field.

The main objective of Health Sciences is to continually improve upon the health and wellbeing of people through the use of scientific research. Our health sciences programmes give students an introduction to the healthcare world and a comprehensive science background to prepare aspiring doctors for a fulfilling career.

Healthcare can be categorised as the application of knowledge that is acquired through health sciences. It encompasses a plethora of fields that include pharmacy, optometry, dentistry, and medicine. It emphasises not only on the treatment, but also on the prevention of illness. A medical practitioner's ultimate goal is to safeguard the overall mental and physical state of their patients.


Stand Out With The Right Credentials, Study Medicine in Malaysia
Our medical programme at Kota Damansara are crafted to hone your skills to become a professional medical practitioner. As an aspiring doctor, this medical course will prepare you for a rewarding career path that ranges from prevention, to therapeutic and rehabilitative medicine. Our goal is to groom doctors to become highly motivated in the growing technological advances in medicine, thus ensuring that patients get the most effective and appropriate care that they require.


Our Medical Course is Divided Into Three Phases:
Phase one is spread out across two years, whereby students are taught general medical sciences that range from biochemistry, anatomy, physiology, pathology, medical microbiology, medical parasitology, community medicine, and early clinical clerical work in a conducive setting.

Phase two is where students start their early clinical clerkship with one year of interchangeable roles in pediatrics, internal medicine, surgery, and women’s health.

Phase three is where aspiring doctors acquire additional knowledge, proficiency, and critical skills during their advanced clerkship. This encompasses two years in multiple clinical disciplines, namely psychiatry, palliative care, community based medicine, rehabilitation, specialised postings of ophthalmology, otolaryngology, anesthesiology, dermatology, diagnostic imaging, and forensic medicine during your fourth year of study.

During the final year, you will go through orthopedics and trauma enrolment, and in preparation for the final professional examinations, you will revisit the four main postings in clinical medicine; pediatrics and neonatology, internal medicine, surgery and women’s health.

Students can expect to foster soft skills in communication, team building, social responsibility, problem solving, critical thinking, leadership, and management during their five years of study.
