MAHSA Meets Its Mission

MAHSA College, also known as the Malaysian Allied Health and Sciences College, was established in response to the growing need for allied health professionals in the country.

The college opens its doors to all who aspire to play an integral part in the healthcare delivery system, equipping individuals with the knowledge and skills for a professional career.

Since its inception in 2005, MAHSA has trained more than 5,000 healthcare professionals.

The college offers a range of degrees, diplomas and certificate programmes. Some of its offerings include degree programmes in nursing studies ("4+0") in collaboration with the University of Teesside (UK); nursing practice development (top-up degree) in collaboration with Northumbria University, UK, which is a top-up degree via distance learning for registered nurses with two-year practice; and the well-received Doctor in Dental Surgery (five-year programme) conferred by Universitas Trisakti, one of the largest private universities in Indonesia.

The latest addition to MAHSA's prestigious degree programme is the BSc (hons) in physiotherapy, a "4+0" programme with the University of Northumbria, UK.

There are also three-year diploma courses, including nursing, pharmacy, physiotherapy, medical imaging, medical lab technology, environmental health and dental technology.

Certificate courses available at MAHSA are the dental surgery assistant and Cambridge GCE A-level.

At present, MAHSA College has two campuses strategically located in Pusat Bandar Damansara and Jalan Universiti.

These campuses are equipped with state-of-the-art infrastructure with modern clinical and science laboratories.

In line with MAHSA's mission to be a centre of excellence in providing healthcare education, students are taught by a team of qualified and dedicated academics.
