About The Course

Overview

MAHSA’s MBBS programme is a 5-year programme. It is divided into 2 phases, phase 1 comprises years 1 and 2 and phase 2 years 3 to 5.

The Phase 1 programme is largely conducted in the MAHSA University campus with some exposure to clinical medicine at Hospital Tanjung Karang.

The Phase 2 programme is the clinical phase and is almost entirely hospital and clinic based. The hospitals used are Hospital Sungai Buloh, Hospital Kuala Lumpur and Hospital Tanjung Karang. Students are also exposed to clinical training at Klinik Kesihatan AU2, Rawang Perdana, Taman Ehsan and Taman Medan. This ensures an eclectic mix of clinical training in major referral centers, community hospitals and primary care clinics.

The completion of this 5 year programme leads to a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) degree.

This programme is accredited by the MQA and is listed in the FAIMER WORLD DIRECTORY OF MEDICAL SCHOOLS.

Phase 1 – Preclinical

Phase 1 spans 2 years. This is the preclinical phase of the programme and basic medical sciences are taught in organ-system blocks. There is also exposure to community medicine during this phase. Non-block modules such as Personal and Professional Development (PPD) and Early Clinical Exposure run across the two years to emphasise the relationship between basic medical sciences and clinical practice. There are two major examinations during Phase 1. The first is at the end of year 1 and the second at the end of year 2.

Phase 2 – Clinical Program

Upon completion of Phase 1, the student will proceed to Phase 2 of the program which is the clinical phase. This phase covers year 3, 4 and 5. It is conducted at hospitals and health clinics designated as teaching centres for the faculty. The student will undergo rotational postings of 2 to 8 weeks in the disciplines outlined in the programme structure. Students have to pass the Final Professional Examination at the end of year 5 to graduate.
