The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - EDUCATION GUIDE -

tHE United States Med­i­cal Li­cens­ing Ex­am­i­na­tion (USMLE) is a three-step ex­am­i­na­tion for med­i­cal li­cen­sure in the United States. It al­lows a suc­cess­ful can­di­date to do his spe­cial­i­sa­tion in Amer­ica.

The USMLE as­sesses a physi­cian’s abil­ity to ap­ply knowl­edge, con­cepts and prin­ci­ples, and to demon­strate fun­da­men­tal pa­tient­cen­tred skills that are im­por­tant in health and dis­ease and con­sti­tute the ba­sis of safe and ef­fec­tive pa­tient care.

The USMLE is a path­way for Malaysian doc­tors to spe­cialise in the United States. Many med­i­cal stu­dents and doc­tors from neigh­bour­ing coun­tries such as Sin­ga­pore, In­done­sia and Thai­land are ac­tively in­volved in the USMLE and have pro­gressed to their spe­cial­i­sa­tion res­i­dency in the United States.

Nugrahan Sdn Bhd was ap­pointed the sole rep­re­sen­ta­tive for Ka­plan Med­i­cal in Malaysia to as­sist Malaysian stu­dents in med­i­cal schools who are keen to bring their med­i­cal ca­reer one step ahead through the USMLE pro­gramme.

Stu­dents may enrol in this pro­gramme while in med­i­cal school.

To date, there are many Malaysian stu­dents from var­i­ous med­i­cal schools who have reg­is­tered to pur­sue USMLE through Nugrahan.

The ex­pected out­come of the USMLE is a gen­eral un­re­stricted li­cence to prac­tise medicine with­out su­per­vi­sion.

Ka­plan Med­i­cal rep­re­sen­ta­tive Jeff Weil will be giv­ing a free sem­i­nar to med­i­cal stu­dents and prac­tis­ing doc­tors at Adroit Col­lege, Viva Home in Jalan Ipoh, Kuala Lumpur, on Feb 22 from 10.30am to noon.
