Overview of Bachelor of Medicine & Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) in MAHSA University Malaysia

MAHSA’s MBBS programme is a 5-year programme. It is divided into 2 phases, phase 1 comprises years 1 and 2 and phase 2 years 3 to 5.

The Phase 1 programme is largely conducted in the MAHSA University campus with some exposure to clinical medicine at Hospital Tanjung Karang.

The Phase 2 programme is the clinical phase and is almost entirely hospital and clinic based. The hospitals used are Hospital Sungai Buloh, Hospital Kuala Lumpur and Hospital Tanjung Karang. Students are also exposed to clinical training at Klinik Kesihatan AU2, Rawang Perdana, Taman Ehsan and Taman Medan. This ensures an eclectic mix of clinical training in major referral centers, community hospitals and primary care clinics.

The completion of this 5 year programme leads to a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) degree.

This programme is accredited by the Malaysian Qualification Agency (MQA) and is listed in the FAIMER WORLD DIRECTORY OF MEDICAL SCHOOLS.


Phase 1 – Preclinical Programme

Phase 1 spans 2 years. This is the preclinical phase of the programme and basic medical sciences are taught in organ-system blocks. Personal and Professional Development (PPD) and Early Clinical Exposure (ECE) modules are conducted across the two years. PPD modules are aimed at developing humanistic attitude and communication skills. Early clinical experience enables students to learn history taking and physical examination skills on simulated patients and develop communication and clinical reasoning skills. The students have some clinical exposure to patients during scheduled visits to Hospital Tanjung Karang in both years.

In addition, regular Problem-based learning (PBL) sessions are conducted, whereby clinical cases are presented, and students work through the basic science of the disease and the identification of symptoms, signs and interpreting a variety of laboratory tests to develop rational differential diagnoses. Both the ECE and PBL sessions aim to integrate the basic medical sciences with clinical science learning issues.

There is also exposure to community medicine during this phase.

There are two major examinations during Phase 1. The first is at the end of year 1 and the second at the end of year 2.


Phase 2 – Clinical Programme

The student, upon completion of Phase 1, will proceed to Phase 2 of the program, which is the clinical phase. This phase covers year 3, 4 and 5. It is conducted at government hospitals and health clinics designated as teaching centres for the faculty. The student will undergo rotational postings of 2 to 8 weeks in the disciplines outlined in the programme structure. Students have to pass the Final Professional Examination at the end of year 5 to graduate.
