Graduate School of Medicine (PUGSOM)

Dean’s Message

Srikumar Chakravarthi

Perdana University Graduate School of Medicine (PUGSOM) is the first medical school in Malaysia to offer a graduate entry medicine (GEM). GEM was initiated in the United States of America (USA) more than a century ago and is currently offered in medical schools across the globe. The Doctor of Medicine (MD) program at PUGSOM was developed to meet both Malaysian needs and international expectations. Various teaching-learning methods are utilized in achieving the learning outcomes of the program, which include lectures, tutorials, small group discussion, team-based learning, research projects and clinical sessions.

We take each student and evaluate them thoroughly from their first week of the program, ensuring that their areas of concern are addressed immediately and provide proper guidance. Our program covers all aspects of the material as set by the USMLE organization and teaches students what they need to know in order to master the exact skills and strategies required to pass the exam. By purposefully keeping our class sizes small, we provide each student with complete immersion into the different clinical scenarios we present for maximum skill building and success for the actual Step 2 CS exam.

We welcome all to pursue their dream to be a qualified medical doctor.

Professor Dr Srikumar Chakravarthi
