Students graduating from the PU-RCSI School of Medicine are conferred with the primary medical degrees of the National University of Ireland, Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery and Bachelor in the Art of Obstetrics (MB BCh BAO). In addition, they are awarded the historical licentiates of the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland and the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (LRCP & SI).

The MB BCh BAO degrees are recognised by the Irish Medical Council (IMC), the Malaysian Medical Council (MMC) and other regulatory bodies throughout the world. The degrees allow the holder to pursue postgraduate training worldwide.

The curriculum is divided into three cycles called Junior Cycle (JC), Intermediate Cycle (IC) and Senior Cycle (SC). Each cycle is taught over one, two or three semesters with the Senior Cycle being delivered over two years, Senior Cycle 1 (SC1) and Senior Cycle 2 (SC2).

Within each cycle, the content is delivered as modules which are largely based on the systems of the human body (systems-based). Each module integrates the biomedical and clinical sciences (integrated) and is defined by a series of learning outcomes (outcomes-focussed).

The Perdana University PURCSI School of Medicine runs a five year undergraduate medical programme. The structure of the course can be seen in this diagram.

Structure of the Medical Degree Programme

PU-RCSI employs a hybrid approach to teaching and learning, mixing traditional didactic teaching (lectures, tutorials, etc.) with problem-based learning where appropriate.

The delivery of course objectives utilizes a variety of teaching methods throughout the programmes, including traditional lectures;case-based learning (where a clinical case is used to illustrate or contextualise learning); small group tutorials (both staff and student-directed); practicals (e.g. anatomy dissection); computer-assisted learning; bedside clinical teaching; grand rounds; shadowing; observation; skills workshops; tutorials; theatre attendance and ward attendance.

Assessments take place during a module (continuous) or at the end of the module (summative) and take many forms including, multiple-choice questions (MCQs), short answer is written questions, Objective Structured Clinical Examinations (OSCEs), practical exams, oral exams, team / individual projects and online assessments. Assessment modes are matched to the different types of learning outcomes (knowledge, skills, and attitudes) for each module.

The RCSI Medical Graduate Profile (MGP) is a list of the ‘exit’ outcomes that represent a shared understanding of knowledge, attitudes and skills that PU-RCSI medical graduates will possess on exit from the undergraduate medical program (click here for a copy of the MGP). These outcomes are grouped into five ‘level 1 ‘ themes’ which are ‘inter-woven’ throughout the course. These themes are:

biomedical

Each of these themes is broken down into a number of level 2 outcomes which are in turn further broken down into a number of level 3 outcomes. Each level 3 outcome links to one or more module outcomes (level 4) in the taught curriculum which in turn link to multiple activity outcomes (level 5).

Doctor of Medicine (MD)

The Perdana University Graduate School of Medicine (PUGSOM) offers the first and only Graduate Entry Medical programme in Malaysia. This is a US-style curriculum and prepares the student to sit for the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE).

A prerequisite is a Bachelor’s degree in any of the Sciences such as Biomedical Sciences, Biochemistry, Biotechnology, Immunology, Genetics, Immunogenetics, Nutrition or Pharmacy.

The MD programme at PUGSOM has been developed to meet both Malaysian needs and international expectations. Various teaching-learning methods are utilised in achieving the learning outcomes of the programme, which include lectures, tutorials, small group discussion, team-based learning, research projects, clinical sessions with standardised/simulated patients, clinical sessions with real patients in hospital settings.

Teaching-learning in the first two years of the four year MD programme is targeted at students being provided with a strong footing in the basic medical sciences while being provided with early clinical exposure. The final two years is carried out by a series of clinical clerkships in the various medical and surgical disciplines. Intersession courses are conducted throughout the four years of medical school.

Our coursework utilises an online Moodle platform, which provides the student with our exclusive curriculum and direct access to our esteemed panel of lecturers, while delivering numerous exam and quiz questions, as well as offering each student a uniquely tailored step-by-step plan and exclusive test-taking strategies for their success.

The unique combination of our exclusive content, as well as student freedom, flexibility, full-time access, and support from our panel of expert lecturers is what sets the PUGSOM MD programme apart from others. This gives our students a massive advantage on the road to success on their exam and during the match, if they wish to be matched for residency. Our track record for success is evident not only in the number of student success stories we have accumulated over the past three years, but also in having an over 95% student success rate in the 1st graduated cohort and over 80% success rate in the second graduate cohort, for USMLE, for both Step 1 and Step 2 CK and Step 2 CS. Our 3rd cohort, graduated in 2017.

We take each student and evaluate them thoroughly from their first week of their MD programme, ensuring that their areas of concern are addressed immediately, thus allowing us to guide our students both as a whole and on an individual basis. Our programme covers all aspects of the ‘testable’ material as set by the USMLE organization and teaches students what they need to know in order to master the exact skills and strategies required to pass the exam. By purposefully keeping our class sizes small, we provide each student with complete immersion into the different clinical scenarios we present for maximum skill building and success on the actual Step 2 CS exam.

The MD program at PUGSOM has been developed to meet Malaysian needs and international expectations. Students will be academically prepared to sit for the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USLME).

Various teaching-learning methods are utilized in achieving the learning outcomes of the program. Teaching learning methods include lectures, tutorials, small group discussion, team-based learning, research projects, clinical sessions with standardised/simulated patients, clinical sessions with real patients in clinic and in hospital settings.

Teaching-learning in the first two years of the four year GEM program at PUGSOM is targeted at students being provided with a strong footing in the biomedical and health sciences while being provided with early clinical exposure from the first semester in the first year of medical school.

In the final two years in the medical school teaching-learning is carried out by a series of clinical clerkships in the various medical and surgical disciplines. Intersession courses are conducted throughout the four years of medical school.

At the end of the MD program, students will be able to practice medicine in a proficient and competent manner.

  1. A degree in Science e.g. Biomedical Sciences, Biochemistry, Biotechnology, Immunology, Genetics, Immunogenetics, Engineering, Nutrition or Pharmacy
  2. Computer Literacy – Working knowledge
  3. MUET Examination score of Band 4 and above for Malaysian candidates.
