Bachelor of Medicine & Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS)

The AIMST University medical programme is modern and innovative. It is modeled on the clinically integrated curriculum followed by major medical schools in the United Kingdom and also incorporates local requirements stipulated by the Malaysian Medical Council. The 5-year programme is conducted entirely within the State.


Programme Outline

Year 1

The first year programme features integrated teaching on a molecular and cellular basis of medical society and health. Biostatistics and ethics in medicine coupled with a short interface with the hospital, students are to complete a Self Study Module, choosing from a selected list of subject-specific topics, or a non-assigned topic. Primary care interphase for 2 weeks

Year 2

Year 2 is dedicated to systems and is divided into 2 blocks – systems term 1 covering the cardiovascular, respiratory and gastrointestinal systems. Systems term 2 covers central nervous system, endocrine, reproductive system and renal system and hematology. Problem-based learning (PBL) forms an integral part of the block. Clinical skill learning for various systems is carried out in the hospital environment for 3 weeks, which constitutes the First Clinical Attachment. They are expected to complete the requisite Self Study Module of phase 1 before they progress into year 3.

Year 3

Year 3 covers Medicine, Surgery, Obstetrics and Gynaecology and Pediatrics, Forensic Medicine, Psychiatry, and Orthopaedics. Year 3 also has a co-curricular module wherein students engage themselves in varied activities like sports, literary projects, ethics, environmental awareness etc and they are assessed.

Year 4

During these years of the junior clerkship, students will be actively engaged in Problem Based Learning sessions, symposia, clinical classes and self-directed learning.

Year 5

Year 5 is designed as senior clerkship wherein the students will consolidate the knowledge gained in year 3 and 4. The students will revisit and strengthen the skills in all the four major areas: Medicine, Surgery, Obstetrics & Gynecology, Orthopaedics, Psychiatry, Family medicine, and Pediatrics. This phase is designed to further develop their personal and cognitive skills to prepare them for the pursuit of lifelong learning and adaptation to change, as well as to enhance their analytical and communication skills.
Towards this end, there is much student focus on Problem Solving Exercises (PSE)/Problem Based Learning, CME (continuing medical education) and group discussion/peer review. Students will learn the management aspects as well. Students also have to complete a final Self Study Module to meet the course requirement.
