The MBBS programme provides an impactful and excellent education and training in medicine. It uses a student-centered and problem-based approach to learning which should apply throughout the physician’s career.
The 5-year programme is divided into two phases namely the Basic Medical Sciences phase (Years 1-2) and Clinical Sciences phase (Year 3-5). The first two years, taught mainly in the Cyberjaya campus, serve as a foundation for basic medical knowledge and is organised in sequential courses/blocks with early clinical exposure.
Students must successfully complete the Basic Medical Sciences phase prior to beginning clinical clerkships. From the third year, theoretical training is extended with clinical practice, where students learn in the various hospitals and health centers affiliated with the Ministry of Health and Ministry of Defence. Successful graduates are granted a Bachelor of Medicine & Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) degree, fully recognized by the Malaysian Medical Council.
