Established on 23 October 2005, Cyberjaya University College of Medical Sciences (CUCMS) is a registered and accredited private university located in Cyberjaya, Malaysia's first smart city. In its mission to be a distinctive institution of international repute that produces competent healthcare professionals who are intellectually, emotionally and spiritually balanced, CUCMS has been accorded a 5-star (Excellent) rating by the Malaysian Qualification Agency.
There are now more than 20 programmes offered at CUCMS - with undergraduate and postgraduate degrees as well as research courses available in a number of disciplines, including medical sciences, pharmaceutical sciences, psychology, physiotherapy, homoeopathic medical sciences, occupational safety and health. With a focus on healthcare-related disciplines, most of the University's teaching is conducted through 7 faculties:
On top of that, CUCMS also provides pre-university, bridging and other training programmes through 5 academic centres:
The university management is led by the President, Professor Dato’ Dr Mohamad Abdul Razak, who is a reputable Orthopaedic Surgeon Specialist; former Director of a leading public teaching hospital in Kuala Lumpur; Visiting Registrar of the Orthopaedic Department in Edinburgh University; Registrar and Spinal Injury Fellow of Southport Spinal Injuries Centre, Liverpool; and former President of the Malaysian Orthopaedic Association.
To help support the teaching and learning process, the University has invested heavily in providing a top-notch library with experienced personnel. The library collection includes over 30,000 books and hundreds of digital media for the exclusive use of our students. As a specialised library, it also subscribes to over 30 databases that provide our students with access to over hundreds of thousands of research papers, manuscripts and other digital reference.
The University has over 30 different science laboratories for basic science subjects as well as specialised research laboratories such as Pharmacognosy Lab, Simulated Aseptic Room, Medical Sciences Lab, Biomedical Engineering Lab and Bioequivalance Drug Lab, among others. Distinct from the basic science laboratories where most of the teaching and learning is conducted, the graduate and research specific laboratories cater specifically to students who are conducting their research project for both graduate and undergraduate programmes. These labs are equipped with High-Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC), Gas Chromatography (GC), Spectrophotometer, Gel Documentation System, ELISA Absorbance Reader, Microplate Washer, and Polymerase Chain Reaction thermal cycler (PCR).
To ensure our students have the first-hand experience in patient management, trained clinical skills instructors also conduct clinical skills sessions at any of our three Clinical Mock Wards which have been designed similar to a typical hospital ward along with teaching mannequins, electrocardiogram machines, and other hospital and surgical tools.
CUCMS has moved to its new campus in mid-2018. With over 60% increase in floor space and the integration of innovative, modular, multi-purpose principles, this campus will be able to accommodate approximately 8,000 students and prepare the University for its next phase of growth.
Equipped with the latest technology in educational delivery, a 18,000 sq. ft. library with a collection of over 50,000 books as well as multiple spaces for learning and recreation, the campus is built to promote student engagement and interaction, supporting and enhancing their overall experience at CUCMS.
Other facilities and amenities include:
The CUCMS Vasity Lodge is a 1,500 capacity residential hostel/apartment that provides students with a University Shuttle Bus service for them to travel back and forth between the campus and their lodging. It is located next to a mall and comes complete with:
Every unit is designed to be occupied by 8 students - that is, 2 students per room. The size of each apartment floor is approximately 1180 sq. ft., consisting of 4 rooms, 3 bathrooms, 1 shared living room and kitchen area.
Satellite accommodation options are also available for students with clinical attachment in Seri Manjung, Perak; Nilai, Negeri Sembilan; and Terendak, Melaka.
