MSU Offers Top-Class Medical Training

THE International Medical School (IMS) signals the Management and Science University's (MSU) leap towards internationalising itself.

Located in Bangalore, India, IMS is an indication of MSU's commitment in offering critical programmes, particularly in medicine.

IMS specialises in the Bachelor of Surgery and Bachelor of Medicine (MBBS) and is seen as complementing the government's effort to create more accessibility for those interested in medicine.

Housed in a 26ha (65 acres) campus, IMS is adjacent to its teaching hospital, the MS Ramaiah Memorial Hospital. This is a multi- specialty world-class hospital with dedicated staff and excellent health care facilities.

The hospital offers highly-qualified doctors, specialists and competent paramedics working towards providing quality healthcare.

"Bangalore provides an excellent setting for MSU to establish its medical school.

"The wealth of experience and development in the medical field that India has to offer is unique and meets the expectations of medical authorities all over the world," said MSU president and vice- chancellor Prof Datuk Mohd Shukri Ab Yajid.

He added that, "other than studying under the supervision of experienced medical experts, students will also be exposed to multi- specialty world-class hospitals with dedicated staff and excellent medical facilities, such as the MS Ramaiah Memorial Teaching Hospital and Baptist Hospital.

The duration of the IMS MBBS programme is 51/2 years, including a one-year programme in Bangalore.

Upon completion, students have to register with the Public Service Department and complete a two-year housemanship programme at selected public hospitals under the supervision of the Health Ministry.

The academic terms begins in September and qualified students are required to sit for the Medical Entrance Test (MET) to determine their aptitude for the programme.

The intake of new students is limited to 150.
