At Taylor’s University School of Medicine, we aim to create doctors that provide safe patient care that can demonstrate strong professional and ethical values. With our state-of-the-art facilities that are on par with standards set by the Malaysian Medical Council (MMC) and the Ministry of Higher Education, students will go through a rigorous curriculum focused on patient-care.
Our Foundation in Science prepare students ahead with essential knowledge before diving deeper into understanding the complexity of the human anatomy. This one-year foundation programme will help arm students with cognitive and soft skills that will guide them to be self-reliant learners.
We believe a strong support system is essential to a student’s growth. Adapting to university life can be daunting and stressful at times. Hence our First Year Experience initiatives, such as motivational talks and peer-assisted study sessions, are here to help students excel and build a good learning base during the foundation programme.
