Undergraduate Programme : MBBS 240

July 6, 2020Undergraduate Programme : MBBS 240

INTRODUCTION

The MBBS240 programme is an undergraduate programme offered by the Faculty of Medicine, UiTM. It is a five-year programme, which is divided into the preclinical phase for 2 years and the clinical phase for three years. The maximum duration allowed in this programme is seven years.

THE CURRICULUM

The curriculum is an integrated system-based curriculum, which draws together knowledge, skills, attitudes, and values from different subject areas to develop a powerful foundation of the medical sciences and a thorough understanding of key ideas.


Preclinical Phase (Year 1& Year 2)

In the preclinical phase, students are taught according to the body system called modules, with various departments contributing to the delivery of each module. The duration of each module varies between three to seven weeks.

There is a horizontal integration of the curriculum in the preclinical years involving six departments, which are Anatomy, Pharmacology, Biochemistry & Molecular Medicine, Physiology, Medical Microbiology & Parasitology and Public Health Medicine. Additionally, vertical integration between preclinical and clinical subjects occurs in the Early Clinical Exposure module (ECE), which is conducted throughout Year 1 and Year 2. Personal and Professional Development (PPD) is a strand which is also conducted throughout the preclinical phase so that students are more self-aware and able to improve their performance.

The modules taught in the preclinical phase are:

Clinical Phase (Year 3, 4 and 5)

Year 3 starts with a three-week Consolidation of Basic Clinical Methods (CBCM) intended for students to reinforce their history-taking and physical examination skills. Following CBCM, students are rotated through various postings which are conducted by various clinical departments. Students are then exposed to subspecialty postings in Year 4. The duration of each posting varies between two to eight weeks. Ethics & Medical Jurisprudence is a module which is vertically integrated into Years 3 to 5.

ACCOMMODATION

Medical training is tough. To help our students cope with the demanding schedule, they are required to stay in the residential colleges. The allocation of students are as follows:

  • Sungai Buloh Campus: Year 1, 2, and 4
  • Puncak Alam Campus: Year 3
  • Selayang Campus: Year 5
  • Teluk Intan Campus: Students in the clinical years during their rotations in Teluk Intan Hospital.


FACILITIES

The campuses are equipped with facilities required for optimal teaching and learning activities, such as lecture halls, seminar rooms, laboratories, clinical skill centres (in both Sungai Buloh and Puncak Alam campuses), a medical museum (in Sungai Buloh campus) and a library (in Sungai Buloh and Selayang campuses). For their clinical training, students are posted to the Al-Sultan Abdullah Hospital in Puncak Alam, Hospital Selayang, Hospital Sungai Buloh and Hospital Teluk Intan.

Besides academic facilities, there are also ample recreational spaces available for sporting and religious activities. Additionally, the Sungai Buloh Campus is well-equipped with state-of-the-art research laboratories to support research activities. Essential support services such as counselling, and health and dental services are also provided on-site. All the campuses are accessible via public transport, with the main Sungai Buloh campus also serviced by a feeder bus connecting it to the Sungai Buloh MRT station.
