Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS)

Sarjana Muda Perubatan dan Sarjana Muda Pembedahan (MBBS)

The MBBS UniKL programme is a five (5) year programme conducted at UniKL RCMP campus in Ipoh, Perak. It is taught by full-time academic staff who bring with them years of experience in the field of medicine. They are complemented by senior clinicians and specialists from Hospital Raja Permaisuri Bainun, Ipoh and other hospitals in Perak who are equally enthusiastic in sharing their vast knowledge and experience with the students.

One distinctive aspect of the MBBS UniKL programme is its unique curriculum which is modelled on the University of Sheffield UK MBChB medical programme as well as the MBBS programme of Universiti Malaya.

UniKL RCMP uses the integrated teaching method in producing quality medical students who are able to deliver effective diagnosis for better treatment of patients. Students learn in the context of medical problems while integrating all related sciences with clinical learning as the basis.

Upon completion of the MBBS UniKL programme, graduates will be posted to government hospitals for their initial training as interns.
