Lead­ing provider of med­i­cal ed­u­ca­tion

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Higher Education -

FIVE years of rig­or­ous study and hard work reaped ben­e­fits for over 400 grad­u­ates of the MBBS and BDS pro­grammes of Me­lakaMa­ni­pal Med­i­cal Col­lege (Ma­ni­pal Univer­sity) (MMMC).

The 2017 grad­u­a­tion cer­e­mony was held on July 16 at De­wan Seri Negeri, Me­laka, and of­fi­ci­ated by Ma­ni­pal Univer­sity pro-chan­cel­lor Dr H.S. Bal­lal.

The list of grad­u­ates in­cludes Malaysian stu­dents and in­ter­na­tional stu­dents from Aus­tralia, Mal­dives, Sri Lanka and Tan­za­nia.

Through its af­fil­i­a­tion with the top-rank­ing Ma­ni­pal Univer­sity in In­dia, MMMC is proud to have pro­duced more than 3,400 med­i­cal grad­u­ates for the Malaysian health­care sys­tem.

MMMC is highly re­garded in the coun­try as a provider of high-qual­ity med­i­cal pro­fes­sion­als.

In fact, its rep­u­ta­tion has spread far and wide with many of its alumni spread across the globe.

MMMC’s re­pute stems from its drive to­wards ex­cel­lence in the ser­vices it pro­vides to stu­dents, which led to an en­vi­able record of ac­com­plish­ments.

MMMC of­fers two un­der­grad­u­ate pro­grammes and a pre-univer­sity course.

The Bach­e­lor of Medicine and Bach­e­lor of Surgery (MBBS) – the col­lege’s flag­ship pro­gramme – was es­tab­lished 20 years ago, at a time when pri­vate med­i­cal schools in Malaysia were few.

The sec­ond un­der­grad­u­ate pro­gramme of­fered is the Bach­e­lor of Den­tal Surgery (BDS).

Both MBBS and BDS are twinning pro­grammes.

Stu­dents will re­ceive a thor­ough ground­work in the pre-clin­i­cal stud­ies (first phase) at the Ma­ni­pal cam­pus in In­dia and then re­turn to hone their clin­i­cal skills dur­ing the sec­ond phase of the pro­gramme at the cam­puses in Muar or Me­laka.

MBBS stu­dents will be trained at the gen­eral hos­pi­tals in Me­laka, Muar, Jasin and Sega­mat dur­ing their clin­i­cal post­ing and also at ru­ral health clin­ics in and around Me­laka.

Mean­while, den­tistry stu­dents do not have to ven­ture far ex­cept for their ru­ral post­ing and clin­i­cal out­reach pro­grammes.

Most of the den­tal clin­i­cal train­ing is com­pleted at the den­tal clinic at the cam­pus in Me­laka.

The den­tal clinic, run by its Fac­ulty of Den­tistry, is com­pre­hen­sively out­fit­ted for var­i­ous spe­cial­i­ties in den­tistry.

With its af­ford­able den­tal care, it comes as a boon to the com­mu­nity around.

MMMC’s Foun­da­tion in Sci­ence (FiS) pro­gramme, which was es­tab­lished in 2012, is a pre-univer­sity pro­gramme like no other.

Un­like com­mer­cially ori­ented foun­da­tion pro­grammes, FiS is ex­clu­sively tai­lored for stu­dents who truly have a pas­sion to pur­sue their stud­ies in medicine and den­tistry.

The in­cor­po­ra­tion of pre-med­i­cal sub­jects such as Anatomy, Phys­i­ol­ogy, Phar­ma­col­ogy and Oral Bi­ol­ogy en­able a smooth tran­si­tion for stu­dents into the first year of med­i­cal or den­tal school.

This is ev­i­denced by tes­ti­mo­ni­als from past FiS stu­dents who are cur­rently pur­su­ing their MBBS and BDS at MMMC’s In­dia and Malaysia cam­puses.

Em­bark­ing on a new chap­ter in ed­u­ca­tion may seem daunt­ing.

With so many in­sti­tu­tions to choose from, de­ci­sion-mak­ing be­comes an even more dif­fi­cult task. How­ever, if medicine or den­tistry is your call­ing then look no fur­ther.

As a lead­ing provider of med­i­cal ed­u­ca­tion, MMMC would be your best choice to get a head start into the med­i­cal pro­fes­sion.

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