Pur­su­ing med­i­cal stud­ies at MMMC

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - HIGHER EDUCATION -

“BE­ING a healer is more than just a job, it is a vo­ca­tion.”

That has been the un­der­ly­ing phi­los­o­phy for Me­laka- Ma­ni­pal Med­i­cal Col­lege ( MMMC) that led it to be­come a provider of the high­est qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion in medicine and den­tistry in Malaysia.

MMMC is renowned for de­liv­er­ing ex­ceed­ingly skilled med­i­cal doc­tors and den­tal sur­geons to not just the Malaysian health sys­tem.

Their alumni’s skills have also reached all parts of the world, in­clud­ing Aus­tralia, New Zealand, the UK and the US, to name just a few.

Out­stand­ing cour­ses

The in­sti­tu­tion prides it­self with two out­stand­ing de­gree cour­ses – the MBBS ( Bach­e­lor of Medicine, Bach­e­lor of Surgery) and BDS ( Bach­e­lor of Den­tal Surgery) – as well as the highly sought- after Foun­da­tion in Science pro­gramme ( FiS).

Stu­dents on the MBBS and the BDS pro­grammes com­plete their ba­sic sciences stud­ies in Ma­ni­pal, In­dia, and then re­turn to Malaysia to aug­ment their the­o­ret­i­cal ground­ing in their clin­i­cal clerk­ship at hos­pi­tals in Malacca, Muar, Sega­mat, Jasin and Alor Gajah.

Hon­ing skills

Stu­dents are also sent to the gov­ern­men­tal subur­ban polyclinics to hone their skills.

First and one of its kind, the FiS is a pre- univer­sity pro­gramme like no other.

Un­like com­mer­cially ori­ented foun­da­tion pro­grammes, the home- grown pro­gramme is ex­clu­sively tai­lored for those who truly have a heart for medicine and den­tistry.

Per­fectly in­cor­po­rated with a med­ley of pre- med­i­cal sub­jects

Fer­vent tes­ti­mo­ni­als

One such ev­i­dence would be the fer­vent tes­ti­mo­ni­als from past Foun­da­tion stu­dents who are cur­rently pur­su­ing their MBBS and BDS in Ma­ni­pal.

The BDS fills up its 75- seat quota eas­ily one and a half years be­fore its in­take.

Stu­dents who take the FiS at MMMC have a more op­ti­mistic chance of get­ting into the den­tistry pro­gramme at MMMC.

New chap­ter

Em­bark­ing on a new chap­ter in ed­u­ca­tion can be be­wil­der­ing, and with many in­sti­tu­tions to choose from, de­ci­sion- mak­ing be­comes an even more ar­du­ous af­fair.

How­ever, if medicine or den­tistry is your call­ing then look no fur­ther.

As the pre­mier leader in med­i­cal ed­u­ca­tion near­ing 20 years, MMMC would be your trump card to get the per­fect head start into these no­ble pro­fes­sions.

Your jour­ney to be­come an adept and com­pas­sion­ate med­i­cal pro­fes­sional be­gins at MMMC.
