The medical programme of Asia Metropolitan University (AMU) started in 2012. It is a 5-year programme approved by the Malaysian Qualification Agency (MQA), Malaysian Medical Council (MMC) and the Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE). The programme is divided into 2 phases; the pre-clinical phase and the clinical phase. Following successful completion of the programme, students will graduate with MBBS degree.
The first 2 years of the programme, the pre-clinical phase is conducted in our dedicated medical campus at Bandar Seri Alam in Pasir Gudang, Johor. The clinical phase followed the pre-clinical phase over the next 3 years. Currently the clinical phase is conducted in Muar during which students will do their clinical training in Hospital Pakar Sultanah Fatimah (HPSF), Muar. HPSF is a specialist hospital which provides services in all major clinical disciplines. In addition to HPSF, AMU has also been given approval by the Ministry of Health to utilise Hospital Sultanah Aminah, Johor Bahru, Hospital Kulai and Hospital Kota Tinggi to train its medical students.
In our effort to produce competent medical doctors, we have adopted a holistic approach in the training of our future doctors. In addition to conventional teaching approaches such as lectures, tutorials, practical, seminars, and bed-side teaching, the faculty utilises various teaching-learning approaches such as self-directed learning, task-based learning, field visits, computer-aided learning, and independent learning. This is to ensure the MBBS graduates of AMU fulfil the attributes of future doctors who are not only competent but possess other attributes such as professionalism, lifelong learning skills, leadership qualities, able to work in a team, and able to think critically. Good values are instilled in the medical graduates to ensure that they have the proper ethics and the right attitude in their work environment and when dealing with co-workers and the public at large.
We have invested heavily in our team of academic professionals as well as in equipping our Pasir Gudang and Muar campuses with the state-of-the-art teaching and learning facilities. Being cognizant of the critical importance in having good teachers and role models to mould the minds and hone the competencies of our students, we have built a strong, dedicated and experienced team of faculty members to optimize students’ engagement and learning.
As the Dean of Faculty of Medicine, I am confident that the medical graduates of AMU will excel and flourish in the field of medicine serving not only the people of Malaysia but will have the capacity to serve globally.
