Doctors with a Heart for Healing
While the healthcare industry and medical profession become increasingly profit-driven, we aspire to produce future doctors who are well-rounded with good professional values and the heart for patient care.
Professional values and ethical practice are woven into the very heart of our learning at SOM, and strengthened through early clinical exposure and clinical training. The School organises regular outreach field trips and public health activities for urban and rural communities, in order to instil compassion, social awareness and volunteerism in our future doctors.
Unique to studying medicine in Malaysia, our students are exposed to patients from different backgrounds, demographics, cultures and environments, giving them a better understanding of the community’s health and medical needs from the onset. During these practical sessions, students can interact with real patients, have first hand experience in diagnosing illnesses and prescribe medication.
Students organise activities that create a sense of social responsibility and gain appreciation for the importance of the spirit of volunteerism.
Free blood and urine screening are conducted to create health awareness in high-risk communities. Students gain hands-on practice on the screening procedures, take medical histories, conduct physical examinations and educate the low socio-economic groups on health issues.
Students visit and observe special healthcare facilities provided for cultural sub-groups, such as the Orang Asli. These visits give students first-hand insight into the health issues of these communities in relation to their cultural norms and values.
Our facilities and equipment are on par with the standards set by the Malaysian Medical Council and the Ministry of Higher Education.DISCOVER MORE
