Overview of PhD in Medical Science in Sunway University Malaysia

In this research-based programme, students are actively engaged in bidirectional translational medicine. The programme emphasises on the study that either brings the current issues from patients and medical care to the laboratory settings, or takes scientific discoveries made in the laboratory or the clinic and transforms them into new treatments and approaches to improve health and medical care in the community.

Along with the supervisory guidance, students identify the research question within the scope of medical science and work independently on the research project. Students are required to complete one taught module – Clinical Research Methodology which is designed to prepare students for their competency in project planning and management, and also becoming ethically literate and socially responsible. To graduate, students must produce a thesis based on their original research and subsequently pass the thesis examination and viva voce.
