Top qual­ity train­ing for doc­tors

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Star Education Fair -

RCSI & UCD Malaysia Cam­pus (RUMC) in Pe­nang be­came the coun­try’s 10th For­eign Univer­sity Branch Cam­pus (FUBC) this year and the first in the north­ern area.

It de­liv­ers an ex­cep­tional global ex­pe­ri­ence with the added ben­e­fit of a Malaysian foot­print.

For­merly known as Pe­nang Med­i­cal Col­lege, RUMC was up­graded to FUBC by the Min­istry of Higher Ed­u­ca­tion Malaysia in March with its full name Royal Col­lege of Sur­geons in Ire­land (RCSI) and Univer­sity Col­lege Dublin (UCD) Malaysia Cam­pus.

Nearly 1,700 doc­tors have grad­u­ated from PMC/RUMC with glob­ally recog­nised med­i­cal de­grees from the Na­tional Univer­sity of Ire­land, and are prac­tic­ing in Malaysia, Ire­land and other na­tions.

The de­grees of­fered — Bach­e­lor of Medicine, Bach­e­lor of Surgery and Bach­e­lor of Ob­stet­rics — are recog­nised by both the Malaysian and Ir­ish med­i­cal coun­cils as well as world­wide.

RUMC has in­her­ited over 250 years of med­i­cal ex­pe­ri­ence from two pres­ti­gious Ir­ish in­sti­tu­tions — RCSI and UCD.

It of­fers su­perb clin­i­cal teach­ing with two and a half years of pre-clin­i­cal train­ing in Dublin fol­lowed by two and a half years of clin­i­cal train­ing in Pe­nang.

The cru­cial fi­nal clin­i­cal stage of teach­ing oc­curs in hos­pi­tals in Pe­nang and Se­berang Jaya where stu­dents have full ac­cess to pa­tients. This en­sures they are well-pre­pared for house­man­ship as they are al­ready fa­mil­iar with the Malaysian health­care sys­tem.

RUMC, for­merly Pe­nang Med­i­cal Col­lege, de­liv­ers an ex­cep­tional global med­i­cal learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence with the added ben­e­fit of a Malaysian foot­print.
