UCSI University’s Medicine programme recruits and trains students to become medical doctors to meet the needs of the healthcare system of the country. This goal is achieved with highly qualiﬁed staﬀ, fully-equipped laboratories as well as other essential facilities. With learning as its training thrust, active student participation is the standard expectation.
At the end of the MD programme, the graduates would have attained the fundamental knowledge, attitude, and skills in the following ﬁve areas:
Basic medical services
Clinical and therapeutic methods, procedures, and investigations
Community health and family medicine
Features of the MD Programme
i. Student-centred Learning
With a student-centred rather than teacher-centred programme, the curriculum is structured to foster and encourage student learning and the fostering of ownership over their own learning as the main objective.
ii. Problem-based Learning (PBL)
The Faculty recognises that the philosophy of using problems to learn is the most eﬀective learning approach suited to medicine, and is used to enhance the learning in Basic Medical Sciences.
iii. Integrated Learning
Both Basic Sciences and Clinical Sciences are integrated throughout the academic training with early clinical exposure in the form of hospital visits to enhance the learning of Basic Sciences and to facilitate student transition to a comprehensive hospital & Community-based learning that enables students to develop their interviewing, communication, and physical examination skills. Arranged in Year 2 of the programme, these visits enable students to put their training into practice, as well as to facilitate their transition into the clinical environment in Year 3.
iv. Computer-assisted Learning
The learning process is further strengthened with active incorporation of multimedia tools, which include a computerised multi-purpose laboratory and 3D cyber anatomy software for anatomy dissection sessions
The five-year M.D. programme is segregated into two phases. Phase 1 of the programme (the first two years) is conducted at the Kuala Lumpur campus while Phase 2 (the final three years) is based at the clinical school at the Terengganu campus. Each semester comprises approx 16 weeks of class sessions whereby the hours of contact for each session ranges between one to two hours per session.
