Find out more about our programmeREAD MORE
The Perdana University and Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (PURCSI) School of Medicine aims to provide excellent education and training so that our graduates properly meet the future healthcare needs of Malaysia. PURCSI provides the only Irish medical programme that may be completed entirely within Malaysia. We are closely engaged with local healthcare providers to ensure that students are equipped with the relevant knowledge of health and disease, and appropriate clinical, professional and problem-solving skills.
We differ from other medical schools by awarding the degrees of Bachelor of Medicine (MB), Bachelor of Surgery (BCh) and Bachelor of the Art of Obstetrics (BAO) from the National University of Ireland, as well as the licentiate diploma of the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland and Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (LRCP&SI). These qualifications are recognised by the Malaysian and Irish regulatory bodies, and are held in high esteem in Europe and around the world.
During our 5-year programme students will acquire the knowledge and skills required to deliver, under supervision, the highest level of safe patient care, and will be able to communicate and interact effectively with patients and colleagues. Students will also develop the confidence required to become future leaders of Malaysian healthcare.
We seek bright, talented young people who are passionate about studying medicine, who will always put patients first, who are adaptable and prepared to devote themselves fully to our caring profession and strongly committed to lifelong learning.
