Build­ing strong foun­da­tion for a ca­reer in medicine

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Star Education Fair -

EM­BARK­ING on a med­i­cal ca­reer is a de­ci­sion that can­not be taken lightly.

World-renowned med­i­cal school RCSI & UCD Malaysia Cam­pus (RUMC) is pro­vid­ing an al­ter­na­tive in-road to medicine that re­moves all anx­i­ety over this ca­reer op­tion.

The Foun­da­tion in Science (FIS) is a unique pre-univer­sity path­way, al­low­ing stu­dents to have an early in­tro­duc­tion to the med­i­cal field be­fore em­bark­ing on the fiveyear med­i­cal de­gree pro­gramme.

“FIS pro­vides stu­dents with the added ad­van­tage of hav­ing the op­por­tu­nity to en­gage not only their fel­low course­mates, aca­demics and doc­tors, but also their med­i­cal stu­dent se­niors,” said RUMC Head of Foun­da­tion Stud­ies Datin Dr An­nie Foo.

“You will learn to ap­ply the bio­sciences whilst gain­ing ex­po­sure to clin­i­cal and care-giv­ing as­pects of med­i­cal and health­care pro­fes­sions be­fore start­ing your de­gree.”

FIS stu­dent Muqri Hil­man Ainul Has­nizam (pic) said the pro­gramme is sys­tem­atic and reliable.

“I find RUMC to be one of the best plat­forms to start col­lege, es­pe­cially for those plan­ning to go over­seas.”

RUMC’s unique med­i­cal de­gree pro­gramme of­fers stu­dents a guar­an­teed place (upon ful­fill­ing en­try re­quire­ments) at either RCSI or UCD in Dublin, Ire­land for the first two-and-a-half years.

Dur­ing the pro­gramme, you re­main with your friends and re­turn to Pe­nang for un­ri­valled ac­cess to pa­tients in hos­pi­tals for the clin­i­cal teach­ing in the re­main­ing two-and-a-half years.

With only one in­take per year, full-time stu­dents can be­gin their pre-un­der­grad­u­ate path to medicine in May 2019. Tu­ition fees for FIS are RM30,000 and RM35,000 for Malaysian and for­eign stu­dents re­spec­tively.

En­try re­quire­ments are 3As and 2Bs in Bi­ol­ogy, Chem­istry, Physics, Math­e­mat­ics, or Ad­di­tional Math­e­mat­ics and one other sub­ject for SPM/O-Level.

Uni­fied Ex­am­i­na­tions Cer­tifi­cate (UEC) stu­dents who score B4 in Bi­ol­ogy, Chem­istry, Physics, or Math­e­mat­ics or Ad­vanced Math­e­mat­ics are also el­i­gi­ble.
