Course Description

This truly international degree gives you the chance to study at one of the world's top medical schools and graduate with a qualification to practise medicine in Malaysia, Australia and New Zealand. Offered over five years at Monash University Malaysia, this interdisciplinary course provides world-class training in biomedical sciences, social sciences and clinical skills.

As testimony to the course's quality, our graduate Shaun Yo was Monash's top medical student in 2011, when he won the Sophie Davis Memorial Prize for having the highest overall aggregate marks.

The course draws on Monash's world-leading expertise in medical practice and research, which includes treating premature babies at risk of brain disease, replacing heart valves without open-heart surgery and developing new cancer drugs. It also draws on the Jeffrey Cheah School of Medicine and Health Sciences' particular strengths in the cardio-metabolic field, infection and immunity, global public health and neuroscience.

Our JCSMHS researchers have discovered new genes and hormones that show promise as targeting proteins for cancer research. They have also patented discoveries likely to lead to new products for treating infectious and cardiovascular diseases.

The JCSMHS is also home to the renowned Brain Research Institute at Monash Sunway, now collaborating with the International Brain Research Organization (IBRO) to provide a platform for neuroscientists in the region through seminars and training programs.
