Facilitating Teaching and Learning
The School has customised, well-equipped and industry standard laboratories that are designed to integrate teaching with the practical application of medical sciences. Our facilities are on par with the standards set by the Malaysian Medical Council (MMC) and the Ministry of Higher Education, thus ensuring that our students are exposed to the most up-to-date equipment that are on par with international medical universities.
In this lab, students master basic knowledge of human body structures, and obtain hands-on experience in dissecting the cadavers to study human anatomy. This lab also provides wet and dry specimens of the human body that have been carefully dissected and preserved, anatomical models of different organs as well as ample stock of dry, original and plastic bones for the study of bones and joints to improve their understanding of not just the human anatomy, but how it plays a role in human physiology as well.
This state-of-the-art facility enables our foundation and degree level students to have holistic practical experience and to gain appreciation for human physiology, biochemistry and microbiology at a molecular level. This facility helps to test principles of human physiology in the form of simulated and real experiments, and contains digital and permanent slides of all human tissues and several microscopes for the study of microscopic anatomy, bacteriology and virology.
Clinical Skills Suite
The suite is a purpose-built centre that enables medical students to improve their basic clinical skills and practice history taking, physical examination and bedside procedure that help to evaluate, diagnose and manage patients in a safe, supervised, and stress-free environment. It has standardised patients and computerised human models (mannequins) capable of simulating diseases.
Anatomy and Pathology Museum
The museum features various anatomy teaching collections that are arranged according to the human body. It also exhibits gross pathological specimens that are crucial for orienting students to surgical pathology and helping them to correlate what they learn in lectures to a hands-on approach with real anatomy specimens.
Our library houses a collection of more than 20,000 volumes and journals on science, mathematics, technology, medicine, biomedicine and health. Students will gain access to media resources that contain over 3,000 medical books and online journals, as well as an exclusive collection of database and platforms for self-assessment.
