Qual­ity pa­tient care on the agenda

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - STAR EDUCATION FAIR -

ON your first day, you join an in­ter­na­tional net­work of col­leagues, class­mates, staff and or­gan­i­sa­tions in Dublin, Ire­land.

Through the Pe­nang Med­i­cal Col­lege ( PMC) pro­gramme, you get to choose your pre- clin­i­cal years be­tween the Royal Col­lege of Sur­geons in Ire­land ( RCSI) or Univer­sity Col­lege Dublin ( UCD) - two pres­ti­gious, world- renowned univer­si­ties.

Their pres­ti­gious pre- clin­i­cal stud­ies are quoted as an ex­pe­ri­ence of a life­time with qual­ity education, and ex­em­plary med­i­cal pro­fes­sion­als as ed­u­ca­tors in state- of- the- art fa­cil­i­ties.

PMC stu­dents study and prac­tise with in­ter­na­tional stu­dents from all around the world. Stu­dents then re­turn for ex­cel­lent clin­i­cal train­ing at PMC and its teach­ing hospi­tals, while re­main­ing as full- time stu­dents of RCSI or UCD.

Pa­tient’s agenda and le­gal obli­ga­tions

Ef­fec­tive com­mu­ni­ca­tion con­trib­utes over 80% of the in­for­ma­tion re­quired to de­fine pa­tients' prob­lems and ne­go­ti­ate ap­pro­pri­ate so­lu­tions.

You will learn the key skills of high- qual­ity lis­ten­ing and ex­pla­na­tion, which un­der­pin the ‘ ill­ness’ or ‘ pa­tient’s agenda’.

PMC grad­u­ates also gain an acute aware­ness of eth­i­cal prin­ci­ples and prac­tices. This in­cludes their le­gal obli­ga­tion to al­ways prac­tise medicine ac­cord­ing to the Codes and Laws of the coun­try in which they work in.

Ex­cep­tional clin­i­cal train­ing

With PMC be­ing the only med­i­cal school in Pe­nang, clin­i­cal train­ing years here are de­liv­ered by an ex­pert clin­i­cal fac­ulty in hospi­tals and clin­ics that are ex­clu­sive to PMC stu­dents.

Spe­cial­ist teach­ing in ev­ery dis­ci­pline and ded­i­cated pro­fes­sion­als en­sure stu­dents are adept in the hos­pi­tal en­vi­ron­ment, and dis­play com­pre­hen­sive and com­pas­sion­ate pa­tient care.

Tes­ta­ment to the qual­ity of Ir­ish med­i­cal education, cou­pled with ex­cep­tional clin­i­cal train­ing, is PMC’s rank­ing among the top med­i­cal schools in pre­par­ing grad­u­ate doc­tors for their early ca­reers.

Stu­dents grad­u­ate with three highly pres­ti­gious med­i­cal de­grees - MB BCh BAO ( Bach­e­lor of Medicine, Bach­e­lor of Surgery and Bach­e­lor of Ob­stet­rics) from the Na­tional Univer­sity Ire­land ( NUI), as well as Li­cen­ti­ates of the RCSI ( LRCSI) and Royal Col­lege of Physicians of Ire­land ( LRCPI).

Global ca­reer goals

PMC’s fac­ulty is in­ter­ested in stu­dents’ ca­reer goals and finds re­search, vol­un­teer and work op­por­tu­ni­ties for them in Ire­land, Malaysia and other coun­tries for a whole­some global ex­pe­ri­ence.


PMC grad­u­ates are guar­an­teed house­man­ship place­ments in Malaysia, which are recog­nised by the Ir­ish Med­i­cal Coun­cil ( IMC).

They are also el­i­gi­ble to ap­ply for in­tern­ship in Ire­land, the only med­i­cal school out­side the EU whose grad­u­ates are el­i­gi­ble to do so.

Many PMC doc­tors to­day oc­cupy se­nior po­si­tions in coun­tries rang­ing from Ire­land to Aus­tralia, the United States, Brunei, New Zealand, the United King­dom, and Malaysia.

PMC is con­sid­ered among the lead­ing pri­vate med­i­cal col­leges in Malaysia, and is wholly owned by the RCSI and UCD - who have some 230 and 145 years of med­i­cal his­tory be­hind them re­spec­tively.

PMC is their first joint ven­ture out­side Ire­land and a pow­er­ful state­ment of the cul­tural col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween two na­tions half a world apart.

It will be at the Star Education Fair at SPICE Pe­nang this week­end, so visit Booth C40 at the con­course level.

PMc grad­u­ates will gain acute aware­ness of eth­i­cal prin­ci­ples and prac­tices, as well as key skills of high- qual­ity lis­ten­ing and ex­pla­na­tion dur­ing their med­i­cal stud­ies.
