Graduate School of Medicine (PUGScM)

Dean’s Message

Welcome to Perdana University Graduate School of Medicine (PUGScM).

We are the first medical school in Malaysia to offer the four-year graduate entry medicine (GEM) program for aspiring doctors. PUGScM, established in 2011 is a Public Private Partnership between the Government of Malaysia and Academic Medical Council Sdn Bhd (AMC) with a vision of setting standards of excellence in medical education, research and clinical care.

PUGScM admitted its first batch of students in September 2011. Ninety students have enrolled with PUGScM and the first batch graduated at the Perdana University Inaugural Convocation on 25th September 2016.

These students have already embarked on their medical careers in various hospitals around the country and overseas.

The PUGScM curriculum incorporates current clinical trends and evidence based medicine with emphasis on research and innovation. It also covers all requirements of the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) and equips students with the skills and strategies to pass this exam. This is in tandem with our mission to provide an international educational model that supports intellectual discovery, nurtures creativity and embodies innovative knowledge.

Over the years, PUGScM has recruited some of the best academic faculty to provide outstanding education in an inclusive environment. The PUGScM experience is demanding, but it is also exceptionally rewarding and fulfilling. You will have an exciting journey as you discover your true potential and expand your horizon.

The faculty and I, look forward to having you at PUGScM . I am confident your choice of PUGScM as the pathway to your medical career would be a wise one.
